BILL NUMBER:S1549

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the election law, in relation to allow-
ing for polling place voter registration for any qualified person who is
not registered to vote

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To provide qualified persons who have
never previously registered to vote with the opportunity on the day of
an election.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 5-210 of the election law is amended by adding a new subdivision
1-a.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation seeks to set parameters and guidelines
for Election Day voter registration. Allowing for persons eligible to
vote to register to vote up until and on Election Day has increased
voter turnout in the six states (Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, new Hampshire,
Wisconsin and Wyoming) On average, turnout was 14% higher in EDR states
than across the country in the 2004 election cycle. New York consistent-
ly ranks near the bottom in voter turnout in the country. It is imper-
ative the state take every action necessary to allow eligible voters the
opportunity to register and vote. Most voters do not get excited or
involved in elections until the very last moment when often it is too
late to register to vote. This must be changed, voters should have the
ability to register and vote on Election Day.
