Athena Strategies President Kathy Boockvar was proud to support and attend New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s voting rights bill signing ceremony this week, enacting a series of election reform measures that will give NY voters more options on how to vote. After the ceremony, Boockvar spoke with NNY360 about this slate of election laws, including allowing all voters to vote early by mail. She said she was proud to see the progress New York has made in the past few years to offer more options to eligible voters, including early voting and now mail-in voting.
