A Broken Promise: Agency-Based Voter Registration in New York City - Center for Popular Democracy, Citizens Union of the City of New York, Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, New York Public Interest Research Group, and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, October 2014: A new evaluation of a New York state law requiring voter registration opportunities to be provided at 18 city agencies found many of the agencies failing to do so. In 84 percent of client interactions, officials did not comply with the requirement to offer voter registration application forms. Additionally of all agency employees who responded to inquires about training related to voter registration procedures, none said they received any regular training.
