Manktelow Calls For Election Integrity

Assemblyman Brian Manktelow (R,C,I-Lyons) joined with Assemblyman Kevin Byrne today to call for increased election integrity. In response to efforts from New York City and other states, including Vermont, that would enable noncitizens to vote in local elections, Manktelow is concerned that this will open up New York’s elections to outside influence.

“It is imperative that we maintain the sanctity of our elections,” Manktelow said. “The strength of our country relies on the voting process, it’s that simple. Allowing foreign nationals and others to vote could drastically compromise our nation to foreign interference. I will always stand by for strengthening election integrity at all levels.”
