New York City Appeals Noncitizen Voting Ruling

In response to the Adams administration appeal of the Richmond County Supreme Court’s ruling, Murad Awawdeh, Executive Director, New York Immigration Coalition said:

“As expected, the City has appealed the Richmond County Supreme Court's politically motivated ruling overturning the Our City, Our Vote law (Local Law 11-2022). We are ready and eager to continue defending the right for nearly one million New Yorkers to have a voice in their local democracy. We remain confident that this law is legal and an essential expansion of our democracy as it faces divisive partisan attacks.”
