          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 

     1    Section 1. Paragraphs f and g of subdivision 10 of section 2553 of the
     2  education law, as added by chapter 242 of the laws of 1974, are  amended
     3  to read as follows:
     4    f.  Petitions for the nomination of members of such school board shall
     5  be on white paper containing the required signatures of qualified voters
     6  of the city of Buffalo. The sheets of such petition  shall  be  numbered
     7  consecutively,  beginning  with  number  one, at the foot of each sheet.
     8  Such a petition must set forth in every instance  the  correct  date  of
     9  signing,  the  full name of the signer[,] and his [present] or her resi-
    10  dence[, the residence from which he was registered at the  time  of  the
    11  last  preceding general election, if he was registered at that time, the

    12  city school subdistrict of such residence at such time and the  election
    13  district  thereof  at  such  time. A signer need not himself fill in the
    14  date, residence or  residences,  city  school  subdistrict  or  election

    18  registered at the time of the last preceding  general  election  is  the

    21  the time of the last general election, he shall write "not registered at

    22  that time."]. A signer need only place his or  her  signature  upon  the
    23  petition,  and  need  not  himself or herself fill in the other required
    24  information.

    26  substantially in the following form:
