call for increased election integrity on Monday March 21, 2022.

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R,C,I,SAM,ROS-Mahopac), alongside Assembly Minority
Leader Will Barclay and their Republican colleagues, today rallied to call for increased election
integrity and protection from foreign influence. In response to efforts from New York City and
other states, including Vermont, that would enable non-citizens to vote in local elections, Byrne
has introduced legislation which would amend the state’s Constitution (A.9095), to ensure that
“only citizens” shall be entitled the right to vote in New York’s elections.

“It is imperative for the health and continuation of our democracy that we maintain
strong, safe, and fair elections,” Byrne said. “One of the hallmark benefits of citizenship has
been the exclusive right to vote in our elections. Only citizens of the United States should have
that sacred right—not foreign nationals. I am completing a 99 Form to force the bill on the
Election Law Committee Agenda this session, and I am calling on the public to express their
support for this common-sense amendment by signing our online petition. This amendment
deserves a vote on the floor. In the end, as with every constitutional amendment, the voters will
have the opportunity to decide its outcome via referendum.”
The public can sign the petition to only allow citizens to vote at:
