CLC Vice President Urges New York Governor to Sign State Voting Rights Act into Law
WASHINGTON D.C. — Paul Smith, senior vice president of Campaign Legal Center (CLC), issued the following statement after the New York State Assembly passed the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of New York. The bill now heads to the governor’s desk for her signature.
“The right to vote is one of our most basic freedoms. Passing the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of New York can pave the way for other states to step up and protect the freedom to vote for their citizens. Our democracy works best when every voter can participate without barriers, so they have a say in key decisions that impact their future.”
