We produced this short video for Common Cause NY on Election Day 2020. Travelling across the boroughs of New York and into Westchester County, we asked Common Cause volunteers why they show up to help voters outside of the polls to understand why the work Common Cause does is so vital to our democracy.

Common Cause New York continues to be one of the most active state chapters in the country, representing tens of thousands of New Yorkers throughout the state. We are leaders in the movement for election administration reform, campaign finance reform and upholding ethics laws to impact systems that undermine people’s faith in democracy. Our contributions with national campaigns, legislative analysis, and coalition building have secured significant victories in courtrooms, statehouses, local communities, and at the ballot box.
