Jacobson named chairman of elections subcommittee

ALBANY – State Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson (D, Newburgh) has been named as chairman of the Election Day Operations and Voter Disenfranchisement subcommittee.

Jacobson is a former long-time chairman of the Orange County Democratic Committee and a former Newburgh City councilman.

“We passed significant voter reforms, including early voting, this past January,” he said. “Early voting will take place for the first time this November. It is this subcommittee’s job to help make sure that early voting is implemented smoothly.”

Jacobson said he will work with state and county boards of elections and voting advocates to review the process and recommend improvements both before and after November.
