Who We Are

The Brooklyn Voters Alliance  is an all-volunteer organization that works to protect and expand voting rights in New York State. We promote voter participation, education, and the reform of New York’s regressive voting laws to ensure fairness and equal access to our fundamental right to vote.

The Brooklyn Voters Alliance is affiliated with GetOrganizedBK and is a founding member of the Let NY Vote coalition.

What We Do

The New York legislative calendar begins in January 2019. This year presents a momentous opportunity for transformational changes to New York’s voting laws. BVA will work with the LetNYVote coalition and advocacy groups throughout Brooklyn and New York to educate the public and press our representatives to pass meaningful voting reforms this legislative session. Please review our calendar for upcoming events and contact us at bkvotersalliance@gmail.com if you have any questions. 

What We Support 

New York is woefully behind the rest of the country when it comes to voting reform. Much can be done to bring New York into the 21st century, but the Brooklyn Voters Alliance specifically advocates for the following reforms to increase voter access and participation: 

  • Automatic Voter Registration
  • Same-day Voter Registration
  • Early Voting
  • Permanent re-enfranchisement of individuals on parole
  • Consolidating primaries
  • Flexibility to change party registration
  • Voter friendly ballot
