NYC Passes Law Giving Noncitizens Voting Rights

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

NYC Mayor Eric Adams approved legislation by the city council that allows non-citizens to vote in local elections. The New York State Republican Party said it will file a lawsuit to get the plan thrown out, arguing the state’s constitution is explicitly clear that voting is a right guaranteed exclusively to American citizens. The move has the potential to massively influence local elections while diluting the votes of American citizens in the city.
