As part of our Voter and Civic Education Series, LittleAfrica BronxNews interviewed Eric Friedman, Assistant Executive Director for Public Affairs for the New York City Campaign Finance Board.
Mona Davids, Founder and Publisher of LittleAfrica BronxNews interviewed Eric Friedman on the following:
1. How does the Campaign Finance Board support candidates running for elected office in New York City through their matching funds program?
2. Who can and cannot contribute to candidates?
Foreign nationals who are illegal cannot contribute to a candidate. Only citizens and green card holders can contribute.
3. What are straw donors?
4. The NYC Votes program including Voter Registration, Early Voting, and Absentee Ballots.
5. Brief description on what is Ranked Choice Voting, the new voting process that will start in 2021.
Thank you Eric Friedman, Matt Sollars, and the Campaign Finance Board team for all you are doing to support candidates and ensure it is easy for voters to register and to vote.
