On February 8, 2021, the New York State Democratic Committee issued a press release stating that over 100 NY State candidates and volunteers commenced a lawsuit to protect the health of New Yorkers in the face of Covid-19. Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, who supported the lawsuit, made the following statement:

“This lawsuit is an effort to prevent the impending and inevitable spread of COVID-19 that would come when in dozens of races, hundreds of candidates may be required to send thousands of volunteers to have in-person contact with hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers in order to collect signatures and access the 2021 ballot.”
