Republicans sue NY Gov. Hochul over expansion of absentee voting

  • New York Governor Kathy Hochul has been sued by Republican and Conservative officials over a new early-voting bill that expands absentee voting. The law allows absentee ballots to be counted if they are taped and show no signs of tampering, and all registered voters can vote early by requesting mail ballots. Republicans argue that changing voting practices should require a constitutional amendment and claim the law will create administrative obstacles for election officials.
  • House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and other members of the Republican coalition filed the lawsuit to protect election integrity in New York. Critics argue that the law will make elections less secure and transparent under Governor Hochul's leadership. The lawsuit was signed by several prominent Republican officials, including RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson, NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox, and NYS Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar.
  • The lawsuit against Governor Hochul highlights the divide between Republicans and Democrats on election integrity. Republicans are concerned that the new legislation will undermine the security and transparency of elections, while Democrats argue that it expands access to voting for all registered voters. The lawsuit seeks to challenge the constitutionality of the early-voting bill and its impact on election integrity in New York.
