Statement from NYGOP Chair Ed Cox on Albany Supreme Court Decision

“This decision is wrong and we will appeal.

“Since the Civil War, New York’s State Constitution has required a constitutional amendment in order to expand absentee voting. The Legislature acknowledged this fact when in 2021 it submitted an amendment for no-excuse absentee voting. The people overwhelmingly rejected that amendment.

“Now, our reckless Democrat-controlled Legislature brazenly states that because they don’t call these mail-in ballots ‘absentee’ ballots, they do not require a constitutional amendment – even though the mail-in early vote ballots are identical in every respect to an absentee ballot.

“We strongly disagree with the court’s decision and believe our position will be upheld on appeal.”
