Dinowitz passes absentee ballot tracking legislation

As New York continues taking steps to expand vote-by-mail options, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz has passed legislation that would require all absentee ballots statewide to be trackable using an online system.

This would be similar to the system in place under the New York City Board of Elections and would take effect Jan. 1, 2022. The effective date of this legislation would coincide with the start of no-excuse absentee ballots in New York if the measure is ratified by voters this November.
