BILL NUMBER:S1009 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the election law, in relation to determinations by county canvassing boards and publication of lists of nominations PURPOSE: This bill would provide mandate relief to counties by eliminating the requirement that boards of elections publish election results in the newspaper, require candidate lists to be published in only one newspaper, and remove the requirement that candidate addresses be published as part of such list. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Subdivisions 2 and 3 of election law § 9-212 as amended by chapter 635 of the laws of 1990 are amended to eliminate newspaper publication of the determinations by county canvassing boards. Instead, local boards of election would have to conspicuously post such determinations on their website. Section 2. Subdivisions 1 and 3 of election law § 4-122 as amended by chapter 359 of the laws of 1989 are amended to limit publication of candidate lists to one newspaper of general circulation and digital publication. Current law specifies that such lists shall be published
