Williams' Statement On First Day Of Early Voting In New York City

October 24th, 2020

Press Release

"Across the city, thousands of people waited hours in line to cast their ballot on the first day of early voting. This demonstrates energy, enthusiasm and engagement from New York voters. The turnout today surprised and inspired me.

"While long lines are a sign of civic pride and determination, they are also a sign that we may need to open additional sites in the future to meet the demand of the electorate. The Administration and Board of Elections must monitor the next couple of days very closely. "Thankfully there are nine days remaining, including another weekend to vote early. I encourage New Yorkers to take advantage of this opportunity to cast your ballot at the best time for you while also reducing the expected strain on the system November 3rd. This is our opportunity to vote for a government that reflects and represents the needs of our communities."
