                   IN ASSEMBLY
 
                                      April 9, 2019
                                       ___________
 
        Introduced by M. of A. JACOBSON -- read once and referred to the Commit-
          tee on Election Law
 
        AN  ACT to amend the election law, in relation to instituting additional
          ballot accountability practices
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section  1.  The election law is amended by adding a new section 7-105
     2  to read as follows:
     3    § 7-105. Ballot accountability. 1. Notwithstanding the  provisions  of
     4  this chapter requiring ballots to include a numbered stub separated from
     5  the  ballot  by a line of perforations, such numbered stubs shall not be
     6  required if the board of elections implements  a  ballot  accountability
     7  process as prescribed by the New York State Board of Elections which (i)
     8  accounts  for  the  number of each ballot style received by the election
     9  inspectors, (ii) retains a running  count  of  ballots  distributed  and
    10  spoiled  which would permit an interim reconciliation at any time during
    11  voting; and (iii) provides for ballot reconciliation  at  the  close  of
    12  polls  to  verify  that  the  number of ballots distributed to voters or
    13  spoiled when added to unvoted  ballots  equals  the  number  of  ballots
    14  received by the inspectors for the election.
    15    2.  Notwithstanding  the  provisions  of this chapter requiring that a
    16  ballot consisting of two or more sheets be provided to the  voter  as  a
    17  single ballot divided by a line of perforations, such perforated ballots
    18  shall  not  be  required and such ballot may be provided to the voter as
    19  separate, unconnected sheets provided: (i) the ballots clearly inform  a
    20  voter  that the voter must receive the number of ballot sheets the voter
    21  is entitled to, specifying such number, and (ii) each such ballot  sheet
    22  shall be prominently labeled as "ballot sheet (here insert the number of
    23  the  ballot sheet) of (here insert the total number of sheets comprising
    24  the ballot)."
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD11127-01-9

        A. 7123                             2
 
     1    3. The state board  of  elections  shall  promulgate  regulations  for
     2  ballot  accountability  consistent with this section which shall include
     3  specific ballot accountability requirements applicable to any ballot  on
     4  demand printing process.
     5    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
