ALBANY, N.Y.--New York's attorney general is trying to make sure more votes are counted on Election Day.
Attorney General Eric Scheiderman is pushing a new bill which he hopes will limit baseless challenged to voter eligibility.
Under the current law, a voter challenged at the polls must recite an oath saying they have the right to vote.
Under the proposed bill, anyone challenging a potential voter would have to provide facts to support the challenge.
Schneiderman says his office has gotten numerous complaints about baseless challenges at the polls and most of the voters challenged were African-Americans, Latinos, and minority-language speakers.
