Early voting bill introduced in New York
By Megan Busse
ALBANY,New York:The New York State Assembly is expected to pass a new bill today that requires local election boards to have at least four polling places where voters can vote early. Voters can then vote two weeks before a primary and almost three weeks before a general election. If passed today, it moves on to the state Senate.
Many states offer early voting in efforts to increase voter turnout, while reducing the wait time to cast ballots on Election Day.
