New York State Bar Association President Michael Miller issued the following statement today:

“Measures to remove barriers to registration and voting and to encourage participation – while maintaining the integrity of the process – will go a long way toward improving civic engagement and enhancing our democracy. Modernizing New York’s systems for registration and voting is a legislative priority for the New York State Bar Association, and we commend the Legislature for acting on these important bills as one of its first actions of the new session.”
