AN ACT to amend the election law, in relation to voter registration


  Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section 5-210  of  the  election  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  255  of  the  laws  of 2015, is amended to read as
  3.  Completed  application  forms,  when  received  by  any  board  of
elections  and,  with  respect  to  application forms promulgated by the
federal election  commission,  when  received  by  the  state  board  of
elections,  or  showing  a  dated cancellation mark of the United States
Postal Service or contained in an envelope showing such a dated  cancel-
lation  mark  which  is  not later than the [twenty-fifth] FIFTEENTH day
before the next  ensuing  primary,  general  or  special  election,  and
received  no  later than the [twentieth] TENTH day before such election,
or delivered in person to such board of elections  not  later  than  the
tenth  day before [a special] SUCH election, shall entitle the applicant
to vote in such election, if he or she is otherwise qualified, provided,
however, such applicant shall not vote on a voting machine until his  or
her  identity  is verified. Any board of elections receiving an applica-
tion form from a person who does not reside in its jurisdiction but  who
does  reside elsewhere in the state of New York, shall forthwith forward
such application form to the proper board of elections.  Each  board  of
elections  shall  make  an  entry  on  each  such form of the date it is
received by such board.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
