Chairman Issues Statement on Early Voting Reform Passage

Monticello, NY – Sullivan County Legislature Chairman Luis Alvarez responded today to the New York State Legislature’s passage of voting reform measures, including the immediate implementation of early voting:

“State legislators – and soon, Governor Cuomo – have taken a historic step forward in ensuring the rights of voters are not curtailed by the limitations of their work and family obligations. For many counties, this legislation will make an important and lasting difference in elections. Like our State leaders, I want as many voters coming to the polls as possible. However, Sullivan County’s budget does not include additional funds for the significant costs of these new initiatives, like early voting. I ask that the State provide that funding, so that local taxpayers are not burdened further.”
