Fix New York's Presidential Primary!

New York has a “closed” primary system.  That means that only people who are registered in a particular party can vote in that party’s primary.  A voter cannot just show up at a polling place on April 19 and be able to register and vote in a party primary. And in New York, the deadline to change or declare party enrollment so as to be able to vote in the April 19 presidential primary was wildly early: October 9, 2015!

Tell your Assembly Member and State Senator: We need just one registration and enrollment deadline - 25 days for both registration and party enrollment!
