Hawley Speaks Following Decision Striking Down Law Allowing Non-Citizens to Vote in NYC Elections

“Today’s decision reasserts the basic principle that our elections are for citizens of our state and that they will be operated in a manner compliant with the provisions of our state constitution,” Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia). “Maintaining sensible safeguards on our electoral processes ensures our elections are fair and that their outcomes can be trusted, so I am glad the judge in this case put the law and our constitution before partisan political interests.”
