April 29 Democracy for New York had the pleasure of featuring Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer at our State Conference in Albany and we are very pleased to be able to follow up with Lt. Governor candidate David Paterson who spoke at our first conference last year.

Sen. Paterson has been a strong leader in New York on HAVA legislation. He and other Democratic Senators have worked with us and other public interest groups in advocating for statewide standards on voting technology specifically advocating for a paper ballot/optical scan solution. The Senator, who is legally blind, is a leading advocate for the rights of the visually and physically challenged people of New York and brings this perspective to the ballot access issue.

For more on Senator Paterson please see his Senate biography.

If you think you'll be able to be in Albany tomorrow evening don't miss this opportunity to hear this very engaging, humorous, and intelligent man speak.

You can RSVP for the event here.
