There is legislation languishing in committee before the NY Senate.

It may already be too late to get this passed before the primary but as long as we're on the phones anyway...couldn't hurt to ring up the Senators in NY and ask them to act on this.

1. Act on what?

 

I did open the link, but you place zero context here. Even if they act on it, they could not change it this election.

6. I'm not certain what you're asking.

Assuming that you opened, and read, the bill you would know that the final line says that it would take effect immediately on passage.

Also, my first line states that it MAY already be too late.

That doesn't change the fact that it's a good idea.

4. I wish NY would have done this sooner. I'm wondering if it's too close to the primary to make

a change?

What about the GE? Hopefully Indies get to vote.

10. I posted this in NY group.

I had two NYers telling me they wouldn't support it.
I tried as hard as I could to make a compelling argument as to why anyone would want to see an open primary but the two that were biting were flying HRC colors. They opposed the idea but wouldn't say that it was only because they knew it would hurt her chances if it passed before the primary.
Any thoughts?
