Gianaris Introduces Legislation to Increase the Number of Early-Voting Sites

Oct. 30, 2020 By Allie Griffin

State Sen. Michael Gianaris, who represents western Queens, introduced legislation today to almost double the number of early voting sites in the state.

The bill comes after an analysis of early voting sites in New York City found the number of registered voters assigned to an early voting site varied greatly across the boroughs — with little regard to the capacity of each poll site.

Some early voting sites have upwards of 100,000 voters assigned to them, while others have just 10,000 or less, according to the New York City Campaign Finance Board (NYCCFB) analysis.
