Shaun Donovan on Government Reform

 

 


Let non-citizens with green cards vote in city elections

We must extend voting rights to non-citizen New Yorkers in order to include them in the civic processes at the heart of our democracy. Federal law prevents non-citizen voting in federal elections, but under a Donovan administration, New York City will allow people with green cards or valid work status to participate in municipal elections for mayor, borough president, city council. If we want to empower immigrant communities, we must ensure that they have a voice in how our city is run.
