Seawright Secures Early Voting in City General Election

Acting quickly, NYS assembly member Rebecca Seawright secured space on Roosevelt Island for early voting in this year’s general election. With exact dates not yet determined, voters will again line up at Sportspark.

“This is a great day for the disabled, senior citizens and all Roosevelt Island voters who traveled off island in 2020, only to suffer long lines and wait times to vote,” said Seawright.

RIOC president/CEO Shelton J. Haynes agreed to using the state-managed facility.

In the featured mayoral contest, Republican Curtis Sliwa takes on Democrat Eric Adams.

A race for the city council seat being vacated by Ben Kallos, Democrat Julie Menin takes on Republican/Liberal Mark Foley.

Early Voting

Seawright has led the charge in setting up early voting sights, adding the Metropolitan Museum and Manhattan Marymount College, along with Sportspark, for the June primaries.

“We must fulfill the intent of early voting opportunities, including convenient voting times such as early morning, late evening, and weekend hours,” said Seawright.

“We are proud to support the establishment of additional sites to eliminate long lines and wait times that deter voters from the exercise of their fundamental rights.”
