Tannousis Wins Lawsuit Striking Down Non-Citizen Voting Law

NEW YORK — Assemblyman Michael Tannousis released the following statement on June 27:

“This decision is a major win for democracy and election integrity in New York City,” said Tannousis. “The New York State constitution and the letter of the law could not be clearer – only citizens are permitted to vote in New York elections.”

He added, “as the son of immigrants that came to this country legally and worked tirelessly to become citizens, I consider voting to be a sacred right bestowed on American citizens. The idea that a person can move to New York City and register to vote after 30 days is preposterous and ripe for fraud… Political partisans tried to enact a law that was a blatant effort to skirt the constitution and manipulate our democratic process for personal and political gain. I am proud to have been a plaintiff on this lawsuit and I commend the court for reaching the right decision by striking down this terrible law. I will continue to fight for integrity and transparency in our electoral process.”
