Schneiderman Pushes Bill To Limit Voter Challenges

ALBANY -

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is pushing legislation to limit challenges to voter eligibility at the polls on Election Day, The Associated Press reported. Under current law, challenged voters are required to recite an oath affirming their eligibility to an inspector. A bill introduced at the attorney general’s request would require those challenging a voter to provide a factual basis for doing it, claiming that many of them are minorities.
