New York's voting regulations are some of the most restrictive and outdated in the country. runNYC joins with the Let NY Vote coalition to persuade our state legislature to pass comprehensive voting reform, including early voting, automatic voter registration, consolidated primaries, and same day voter registration. We need to improve our elections and make voting more accessible and equitable for all New Yorkers.
Campaign Finance Reform
New York's campaign finance system favors the interests of corporations and the wealthy over everyday, working people. To correct this, runNYC supports a small donor matching system for state elections, which would create opportunities for many more citizens to run for office. We also believe that it is essential to limit the influence of big money in elections by closing the "LLC loophole" and reducing New York's high contribution limits.
