Say No To ICE Machines
The Westchester Board of Elections claims a lack of machines caused primary voting problems and wants to buy more insecure, hackable ICE machines. In ‘19, all polling places were open with enough machines (there are 1,000+ in inventory) and the county is facing up to a $250 million deficit. The Board of Legislators votes Thursday, 7/30 soplease call your County legislator by Wednesday 7/29 and tell them to VOTE NO!
Your calls worked! This past week, the NY Legislature passed a number of voting reform bills. Click here to access the list.
