VI. Legislative Update
New York: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio rejected two bill sponsored by the city council which would have broadened voter registration. Intro 492 would have required 15 additional agencies to offer voter registration and Intro 356 would have assigned codes to agencies for voter registration forms to determine which agency provided the form. "We are committed to getting agency-based voter registration right," Mindy Tarlow, director of the Mayor's Office of Operations told the council. "But to get it done, we are going to need time and space to manage the agencies and correct long-standing behavior."
