Assemblyman Mike Lawler Lauds Court's Decision to Strike Down Non-Citizen Voting in NYS

Pearl River, NY, 6/27/2022…​ Assemblyman Mike Lawler (R,C,I,SAM - Pearl River) released the following statement in response to the New York State Supreme Court's decision to strike down non-citizen voting in New York City.

“The New York State Supreme Court’s decision to reserve the right to vote in the state to U.S. citizens is the correct one. Non-citizen voting would dilute the power of individual citizens to shape their government, a right long guaranteed to them by the U.S. Constitution.

“This effort is another in a long line of cynical power grabs made by "woke" New York’s Majority who are trying to rig the voting system to their advantage. Wiser heads prevailed today. This is a great day for small ‘d' democratic norms and the Constitution."
