Bad Luck NY

New York State has closed primaries, which requires voters who want to vote in a party primary to be enrolled in that party in advance of the primary election. But even more complicated, New York requires voters who want to change their party enrollment in order to vote in a primary to do so 25 days before the general election of the year before the primary they plan to vote in. This is the earliest deadline to change party enrollment of any state. This requirement enraged thousands of New York voters who wanted to vote in either the Democratic or Republican presidential primary in 2016, many of whom went to vote in the primary and were turned away. A bill to move the deadline to 90 days before the primary was introduced but went nowhere in the Legislature. This deadline is absurd! This year's it is Friday October 13th.  Let your state legislstor know that this scary deadline has got to be changed.
