  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,
