On May 22, 2019, the New York State Democratic Committee voted to CHANGE its 2020 Delegate Plan to guarantee that:

  1. Unaffiliated voters who apply to become Democrats at least 25 days before the Presidential Primary get to VOTE in the primary, and

  2. Voters who apply to switch to Democrat from another political party at least 60 days before the Presidential Primary also get to VOTE in the primary.

The NYS Democratic Party has now guaranteed that NEW Democrats get to participate in the Presidential Primary—even if NY's restrictive Election Laws aren't fixed by then. (But word has it, this historic reform will also soon become law and apply to ALL parties and ALL primaries.)


Thank you to the hundreds of Democrats across New York State who submitted public comments in support of the Let All Democrats Vote Amendment. This is what democracy looks like!
