After NYC Board of Elections made yet another historical blunder, this time including test votes in the results, in the June 2021 primary, the NY Senate Standing Committee on Elections, led by State Senator Zellnor Myrie, held public hearings. Their goal: find out what problems poll workers, voters and the public are experiencing with the Board of Elections, and gather ideas about much-needed reform.
We listen to explosive & insightful comments from the NYC public hearings and take YOUR COMMENTS about how to move forward with long overdue changes to the agencies that are entrusted to run our elections.
Our guest: Voting Reform activist Kate Doran first became a Brooklyn poll worker in 2004. After over a decade as a Poll Site Coordinator, she now works as an Inspector at an Early Voting site. Kate is an underground New York City elections star because she monitors the NYC Board of Elections Weekly Commissioner meetings and writes detailed reports for other activists and interested parties. She has innovative suggestions, and got an enthusiastic reception!
