On the eve of New York's presidential primary, a national voting rights organization says there's an emergency.
Election Justice USA filed an emergency lawsuit on behalf of hundreds of voters in New York on Monday, urging the state to open primary voting to anyone, regardless of party affiliation.
Right now, New York is a closed primary state, meaning only voters registered as a Democrat or Republican can cast a vote on Tuesday. That's not good for the millions of New Yorkers registered as neither.
