NYGOP Chairman and Governor agree in reducing signature requirement for candidate ballot registry during COVID19 outbreak

Nick Langworthy, Chairman for New York’s Republican Party, delivered his endorsement for a new plan yesterday, limiting the number of signatures required for a candidate to be listed at the ballot box.

In a press release, Langworthy announced:

“I support the Governor’s Executive Order that suspends the petition period on March 17th and reduces the number of signatures required for candidates to qualify for the ballot.  In conversations with Governor Cuomo, I have agreed that when it comes to the safety and health of New Yorkers, we must put partisanship and politics aside during this public health crisis. 

Remaining positive, Langworthy concluded, “We (both parties) will work together to do what’s best for all New Yorkers.”
