Hudson Democrats Support Immigrant Rights and Transportation Safety

The Hudson City Democratic Committee (HCDC) passed a resolution to support expanding access to driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.

Currently, New York State bars hundreds of thousands of immigrants from obtaining driver's licenses due to their immigration status. Without licenses, they are unable to purchase, register, and insure their vehicles. Out of necessity, many drive without licenses, putting them at odds with law enforcement and increasing the risk that a routine traffic stop will result in arrest, detention, or even deportation.

Sign a Petition - Get Democrats on the Ballot

On November 8, we will vote for State Assembly and State Senate (along with President, Senator, Congressmember, judges, and ballot initiatives). But before we can vote for Democrats for the State Legislature, we need to get them on ballot. That’s where you come in. To get on the ballot as a Democrat, candidates need 5% of registered Democrats to sign a petition. To be on the safe side, candidates typically seek to double or triple that number.

Hudson Democrats are supporting the process and gathering petition signatures for Didi Barrett for Assembly and Shaun Francis for Senate.
