NY governor signs ‘transformative’ election changes into law

A package of bills intended to boost voter participation in New York was signed this morning by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. The measures, stalled for years until Democrats fully took control of the Legislature this year, includes permitting early voting that would kick in two weekends prior to election day, new restrictions on donations by limited liability companies and ending New York’s dual primary date system for federal and state political primary dates. There will now be a single statewide primary vote in June. Tom Precious, Buffalo News.
