Two bills meant to streamline the absentee voting process in New York were approved on Tuesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

One bill is meant to ensure absentee ballots sent voters match those used to vote in the district on Election Day.

A second bill creates a more simplified absentee ballot application that was created in 2010 are also used in school district elections.

The bills are the latest batch of changes aimed at making it easier to vote in the state and come after voters in New York for the first time participated in early voting.

“This year we enacted historic reforms to modernize our antiquated voting process and strengthen our election system,” Cuomo said.

“These measures build on that progress by ensuring absentee ballots match the ballots that in-person voters use on Election Day and simplified absentee ballot applications are used in school district elections, making it easier for voters to exercise their fundamental right to vote.”
