NY gov greenlights extended voter reg deadline

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation Thursday giving voters more time to change their party enrollment ahead of next year’s primary elections. The new law scraps the previous Oct. 11 deadline, giving voters until Feb. 14 to switch parties and still vote in the state’s primary elections in April and June. The bill, passed by the state Legislature in June, sat unsigned for months — leading Bernie Sanders’ campaign team to urge Cuomo to approve the legislation last week. Cayla Harris, The Times Union.
