Balllot Access info & Consensus Meeting. Will changes in how candidates get on the ballot provide opportunity for more candidates to get on the ballot? Will it increase New York State's low voter turn-out? These are some of the issues concerning access to the ballot in New York. Join us for a discussion of these questions as well as others and add your thoughts on whether changes are in order for easier access to the ballot. You are invited to bring your lunch.
