Mega Citizenship Drive

ABOUT US

Who we are

Dominicanos USA, a non-partisan, non-profit organization, was formed in 2013 to raise the political power of the Dominican community in the United States by giving them a voice through civic, social, and economic engagement. Since its inception, Dominicanos USA is directly responsible for registering more than 150,000 voters in areas heavily populated by Dominican-Americans in the Northeastern United States. In addition to registering voters, Dominicanos USA coordinates well-oiled Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts to bring New Americans to the poll sites on Election Day, and mobilize Dominican-Americans and other immigrant communities to obtain United States citizenship.

¡4 cosas que debe saber sobre la elección especial de defensor público el 26 de febrero!

¡4 cosas que debe saber sobre la elección especial de defensor público el 26 de febrero!

02/13/2019

El 26 de febrero de 2019 se celebrará una elección especial en la ciudad de Nueva York para nombrar un nuevo Defensor Público.


Esto es lo que necesitas saber:

¿Qué es un defensor público?

Un defensor público es un funcionario electo que sirve como punto de conexión entre el público y el gobierno de la ciudad. Quien sea elegido para este puesto representa los intereses de los neoyorquinos al revisar e investigar las quejas sobre los servicios de la ciudad. El defensor público es también el segundo funcionario de mayor rango después del alcalde. Si el alcalde ya no puede llevar a cabo los deberes de la oficina, el defensor público es el primero en la fila en asumir el cargo de alcalde.

¿Por qué hay una elección especial en febrero para un defensor público?
La elección especial se llevará a cabo este mes de febrero para llenar este puesto que recientemente se desocupa. Esto se debe a que la anterior defensora pública Letitia James asumió su cargo como Fiscal General de Nueva York el 1 de enero.

¿En qué se diferencia esta elección? 

Una diferencia importante en esta elección es que no es partidista, como ocurre con todas las elecciones especiales de la ciudad. Ninguno de los candidatos aparecerá como demócrata o republicano, ni ningún otro partido político. Quien sea elegido ocupará el cargo solo por unos pocos meses. Una elección primaria y una general se celebrarán en el otoño de este año para determinar el candidato que tendrá este puesto para el término completo de cuatro años.

Esta elección será la primera de 2019. ¡Vamos a comenzar el año nuevo yendo a votar!

Vote! It Will Now Be Easier Than Ever to Vote in the State of New York!

Unfortunately, New York has been suffering with very poor voting laws and has fallen behind other states in terms of voting reform. However, we are one step closer of that being a thing of the past! On January 14th, a series of bills were passed by the New York State Legislature that would make voting easier for every New York citizen. The bills include:

  • Early voting (up to 10 days before Election Day)
  • Pre-registration of 16 and 17 year-olds
  • Same day registration
  • Same day federal and state primaries
  • Portable voter registration (allows voters who move within the same state to transfer their registration and vote on Election Day at their new poll site)
  • No excuse absentee voting (allows voters to request an absentee ballot without requiring that the voter state a reason)

As a result of these bills, long lines and crowding at polling sites will hopefully decrease which could help increase voter turnout.

 

DUSA has proudly been at the forefront along with other civic groups fighting for better voting laws in New York. Since 2015, we have gone to Albany every year to speak with New York legislators to advocate for these bills. We are excited to finally see our efforts reflected in the passing of these bills. 

This a step closer to our goal in making sure that every Dominican-American, as well as every U.S. citizen, can freely exercise their right to vote. Nevertheless, there is still much work to be done.

Join us in continuing the fight for voter reform! It is because of you that we are able to do what we do, donate here: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/dominicanos-usa-1
