       A. 8311                             2

    1    7. a.  The  rules  of  a  state  committee  adopted  pursuant  to  the
    2  provisions  of  this section may provide that no candidate for the posi-
    3  tions of delegate and alternate delegate may appear  on  the  ballot  as
    4  pledged  to support a particular presidential candidate, or as uncommit-
    5  ted,  unless  the  name of such candidate for such position appears on a
    6  certificate listing the names of those candidates for such positions who
    7  have filed statements of candidacy for such positions with the secretary
    8  of the state committee within the time prescribed by such rules and who,
    9  if their statements of candidacy contained a  pledge  of  support  of  a
   10  presidential  candidate,  were  not rejected by such presidential candi-
   11  date. Such certificate shall also list the address and sex of each  such
   12  candidate  for delegate and alternate delegate and the district in which
   13  such candidate may appear on the ballot.
   14    b. Such certificate shall be filed by  the  secretary  of  such  state
   15  committee,  with  the  board  of  elections  with  which the designating
   16  petitions for such candidates for such  positions  are  required  to  be
   17  filed,  not  later  than February [twenty-third] SIXTEENTH, two thousand
   18  sixteen.
   19    c. In the event that a designating petition for  candidates  for  such
   20  positions,  listed  as  pledged  to  support  a  presidential candidate,
   21  contains the names of one or more persons who have not been permitted by
   22  such presidential candidate to appear on the ballot as so pledged pursu-
   23  ant to the provisions of this section, then the names of such candidates
   24  shall not appear on the ballot but the names of other candidates on such
   25  petition who have been permitted by the presidential candidate to appear
   26  on the ballot shall be placed on the ballot provided  that  such  candi-
   27  dates are otherwise eligible and that such petition is otherwise valid.
   28    d.  The  state board of elections shall send a copy of the certificate
   29  required by section 4-110 of this chapter to the secretary of the  state
   30  committee  of each party conducting a primary pursuant to the provisions
   31  of this section not later than [March third] FEBRUARY TWENTY-FIFTH,  two
   32  thousand  sixteen. Every other board of elections with which designating
   33  petitions for delegate and alternate delegate were filed pursuant to the
   34  provisions of this section shall, not later than [March fourth] FEBRUARY
   35  TWENTY-SIXTH, two thousand  sixteen,  send  a  list  of  the  names  and
   36  addresses  of  those  candidates  who  will  appear on the ballot to the
   37  secretary of each such state committee.

   39  manner  as  a  chapter  of  the  laws of 2015, amending the election law
