STATEWIDE — A FEDERAL JUDGE is throwing out a New York state law that bans giving food or water to people waiting in line to vote, WNYC reported Friday on its NYC NOW podcast. The ruling, made on First Amendment grounds, comes three years after the  Brooklyn chapter of the NAACP sued the city and state boards of elections.

“We’re laser focused on making sure that we support Brooklyn voters, and we are absolutely ecstatic that we now have another way that we can continue to do that work,” Brooklyn NAACP Branch President Eljoy Williams told WNYC.
