WHO We Are
VoteEarlyNY is New York’s non-profit hub for Early Voting rights, info, education, and news.
VoteEarlyNY is proudly pro-voter. We are a non-partisan, non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization created by voting rights advocates to ensure that much-needed reforms to New York’s Election Law are implemented responsibly, in the spirit with which they were enacted, and made accessible to all New York voters.
Along with our LetNYVote Coalition partners, VoteEarlyNY provides rights-based civic education and is working to build a culture of Early Voting among the public that empowers communities, reducing their dependence on partisan campaigns and administrators for basic information about our civil rights.
At VoteEarlyNY our mission is:
- To provide all New Yorkers with accurate information about our voting options, locations, and hours;
- To educate New Yorkers about their rights under New York’s new Early Voting and Absentee Balloting programs wherever they may live and regardless of who is on the ballot;
- To assist state and local elections officials in implementing modern voter-friendly policies;
- To encourage implementation of voting reforms in a manner that reduces barriers and equitably expands access to the ballot, so all eligible New Yorkers may participate in our elections;
- To provide an independent feedback loop for policymakers by providing voters with the ability to report their experience and any issues they encounter that may jeopardize their rights.
- To work with genuine, pragmatic democracy-reform partners in the achievement of the above.
