See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The New York State Assembly has passed and sent to the Senate a bill to insure that Jewish voters in New York State will not be deprived of a chance to register because of religious date conflicts.

The measure notes that the fifth Thursday before election day this year, a day for registration in most localities, falls on Rosh Hashana. The bill asks that the poll day be shifted to the fifth Tuesday.
