|With a major health crisis impacting our State, nation and world, most eyes are turned to important issues of public health. However, that hasn’t stopped the Governor from trying to kill off the chance for independent thinking at the ballot box.
In New York, there is currently an ability for new political parties to be formed if their candidate for Governor receives more than 50,000 votes. This is a goal UJP seeks to achieve in 2022, thereby becoming an official minor party in the State. Despite this provision recently being upheld by the New York State Supreme Court, the Governor is attempting to virtually eliminate this ability in the already late State budget. Contact your Senator or Assembly member and tell them to reject any attempt to curb fusion voting and independence today! You can reach your Senator by calling 518-455-2800 and your Assembly Member at 518-455-4100.
