Breaking: New York City Mayor Signs Law Allowing Non-Citizens to Vote

New York City Mayor Eric Adams enacted a measure Sunday that will allow more than 800,000 non-citizens in the city to vote in municipal elections.

The new law, which the city council passed a month ago, will grant voting rights any adult who has been a lawful permanent resident in the city for more than 30 days. If it survives a legal challenge, New York City will be the first to institute such a law. However, the law would disqualify eligible individuals from voting for president or members of Congress in federal races and state gubernatorial elections, among others.

A handful of localities across the United States, including eleven towns in Maryland and two in Vermont, permit non-citizens to participate in their elections.
