Nassau County Executive Laura Curran was joined today by the Nassau County Board of Elections and state and county elected officials to remind residents of opportunities to vote early beginning Saturday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Nov. 3. An iPad demonstration of the early voting system followed the press conference.
Voters in Nassau County will be able to vote at any one of the 15 different locations designated across the county. As Gothamist reported earlier this year, Nassau County is leading the way when it comes to early voting. In March, Curran helped lead the charge for expanded access to voting locations across the county. Curran also worked with the Nassau County Legislature to secure $3.7 million in funding for early voting expansion.
“Voting rights are the foundation of our democracy, and in Nassau County, we’ve made good on our promise to make it easier—not harder—for voters to make their voices heard. If you’re a voter in Nassau County, you’ll be able to cast your ballot early at any one of fifteen designated locations,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.
“There is nothing more important than the right to vote, and now it is easier than ever. I encourage everyone to make a plan to head to one of the early voting locations over this historic nine-day period and exercise their right to vote!” said James Scheuerman, Democratic Commissioner of Nassau County Board of Elections.
Attendees of County Executive Curran’s press conference included Democratic Commissioner of Nassau County Board of Elections James Scheuerman; Republican Commissioner of Nassau County Board of Elections Louis Savinetti; NY State Senator John Brooks; NY State Senator Anna Kaplan; NY State Senator Kevin Thomas; NY Assemblywoman Taylor Darling; NY Assemblyman Charles Lavine; Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman; Nassau County Legislator Arnold Drucker; Nassau County Legislator Debra Mule; Nassau County Legislator Laura Schaefer; Town of Hempstead Councilman Anthony D’Esposito; and Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke.
