NYDN: Another Press Release Law by a NYC Democrat
Add Assemblywoman Deborah Glick to the list of NY lawmakers with dumb ideas. Ms. Glick wasted the time of the bill drafting office to propose mandatory voting enforced by a ten dollar fine.
It’s wrong on many levels, not to mention the practicality of enforcing it.
There are some reasons some don’t vote. Uncontested elections, a rigged campaign finance apparatus Ms. Glick surely is familiar with, the lack of offices to vote for, and the sense none of it matters.
Maybe paying New Yorkers ten dollars TO vote would be better than fining them for not.
