Debra Winger, Arliss Howard Hold NY Vote Drive


Actress and anti-fracking activist Debra Winger and her husband Arliss Howard want second-homeowners to register to vote in upstate New York so they can influence local issues including potential gas drilling.

Winger and her husband hosted a voter registration drive Sunday afternoon at the Sullivan County barn of the late photographer, Eddie Adams.

Winger has a Manhattan apartment but also has lived in the Sullivan County town of Fremont for more than 20 years. She told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown (http://bit.ly/17a6jCa) that home is where the heart is, not necessarily where your primary residence is.

Under New York election law, voters can register at their second-home address or their primary one, but not both.

Winger has starred in such films as "Terms of Endearment" and "An Officer and a Gentleman."
