WCBS 880’s Monica Miller On The Story

“What you’ll be doing is giving your name and address and they’ll want a copy of your signature,” said attorney Bob Bishop with Pitta Bishop Del Giorno & Giblin LLC.

He told WCBS 880 reporter Monica Miller that New Yorkers rank 47th in the nation in voter registration.

“We’re all very busy working. There’s a lot of distractions facing you in New York that are not facing you in other areas of the country,” he said. “Our democracy is dependent upon people voting and I look forward to the day where every ATM machine can be used to cast your ballot.”

Election Day is November 6.
