AN  ACT  to  amend the election law, in relation to run-off elections in
  the city of New York; and providing for the repeal of such  provisions
  upon the expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature  finds  and  declares
that  the  effective and timely administration of local elections in the
city of New York is a matter of substantial state concern.  In  further-
ance  of this concern, the legislature finds that it is essential to the
local democratic process to ensure that the board of  elections  in  the
city  of New York utilizes voting machines that allow for the timely and
orderly administration of elections. In order to  modernize  and  update
the  voting  systems  utilized in New York State, the legislature passed
the Election Reform and Modernization  Act  of  2005,  which  set  forth
requirements  for  electronic voting systems, including optical scanning
voting machines, throughout the state. The implementation of these elec-
tronic voting systems  has  brought  the  state  into  conformance  with
national  standards for voting system performance and modernization. The
state has a substantial interest in ensuring that elections in the  city
of  New  York  are  generally conducted with an electronic voting system
that meets the above mentioned statewide standards. At  the  same  time,
the  city  of New York is uniquely situated in that a run-off primary is
required to be held two  weeks  after  the  local  primary  election  in
certain  circumstances.  In  recent  elections administered with optical
scanning voting machines, approved by the state board of  elections,  it
has  taken  over two weeks for the board of elections in the city of New
York to finalize election results. A series of  one-time  and  immediate
short-term  changes  to the current election law, as applied to the city
of New York, are therefore necessary to further the state's  substantial
