Registered voters will NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE in New York's 2020 Presidential Primary if they apply to join the Democratic Party after October 11, 2019. A full six months before the Primary! This is the LONGEST waiting period in the ENTIRE country. Is there a way to welcome these new Democrats into the Party, without forcing them to sit on the sidelines during this critical election?
The New York State Democratic Committee can end this voter suppression this month, but only if they hear from Democrats like US by May 18th.
The LET ALL DEMOCRATS VOTE AMENDMENT changes the NYS Democratic Party’s 2020 Delegate Selection Plan to guarantee that all New York voters who apply to join the Democratic Party at least 25 days before the 2020 NY Presidential Primary get to VOTE in that Primary. No legislative action is required—the Party has the right to make this rule for its Primary.
Changing party affiliation 25 days prior to an election is the national average, it matches NY's voter registration deadline, and it complies with the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) new rule that switching parties needs to be easy.
Here’s what you need to do
Submit Comments - DEADLINE May 18, 2019
If you are a registered Democrat in NY, the most effective action you can take is to submit comments on the NYS Democratic Committee’s 2020 Delegate Selection Plan.
In your comments, urge the State Committee to CHANGE the Delegate Plan and adopt the LET ALL DEMOCRATS VOTE AMENDMENT at their meeting on May 22, 2019. We must guarantee that all New York voters who apply to join the Democratic Party at least 25 days before the 2020 NY Presidential Primary get to VOTE in that Primary.
Be sure to mention the LET ALL DEMOCRATS VOTE AMENDMENT by name in your comments!
When you submit your comments, if you don’t see a category that describes you, select “Other” and add your details (for example, “Registered Democrat” or “Town Committee Member”).
Clicking the button below will take you to the NYS Democratic Party’s google form titled, “2020 NYS Delegate Selection Plan - Public Comments.” Your comments will be shared with the State Party and Democratic National Committee.

If the NY State Democratic Committee does not take steps to establish a 25-day party change deadline, the DNC could take away some of NY's delegates to the Democratic National Convention, leaving NY Democrats with less say in the choice of our Party’s nominee for President.
