AN ACT to amend the election law, in relation to determinations by coun-

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Subdivisions 2 and 3 of section 9-212 of the election law,
as amended by chapter 635 of the laws of 1990, are amended  to  read  as
follows:
  2.  All  such  determinations  shall  be  in writing and signed by the
members of the canvassing board or a majority  of  them  and  filed  and
recorded in the office of the board of elections. [Except in the city of
New  York  and  in  the  counties of Nassau, Orange and Westchester, the
board of elections shall cause a copy of such determinations, and of the
statements filed in its  office  upon  which  such  determinations  were
based,  to  be  published  once  in each of the newspapers designated to
publish election notices and the  official  canvass.  The  statement  of
canvass  to  be  published, however, shall not give the vote by election
districts but shall contain only the total vote for  a  person,  or  the
total vote for and the total vote against a ballot proposal, cast within
the county, or within the portion thereof, if any, in which an office is
filled or ballot proposal is decided by the voters if the canvass of the
vote  thereon devolves upon the county board of canvassers.] Such totals
shall be expressed in arabic numerals.
  3. The board of elections shall prepare and forthwith transmit to each
person determined by the canvassing board to have been elected a  certi-
fied  statement,  naming  the  office to which such canvassing board has
declared him OR HER elected.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
