AN  ACT  to amend the election law, in relation to opportunity to ballot
  committee to receive notices

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

  Section 1. Section 6-164 of the election law, as amended by chapter 16
of the laws of 1988, is amended to read as follows:
  § 6-164. Primary, uncontested; opportunity to ballot. Enrolled members
of  a party entitled to vote in the nomination of a candidate for public
office or the election of a candidate for party position  in  a  primary
election  of  such  party, and equal in number to at least the number of
signers required to designate a candidate for such  office  or  position
may  file  with the officer or board with whom or which are filed desig-
nating petitions for such office or position a  petition  requesting  an
opportunity  to write in the name of a candidate or candidates, who need
not be specified, for such office or position. Upon the receipt of  such
a  petition,  such  office or position shall be deemed contested and the
primary ballots of the party shall afford an opportunity to vote  there-
on.  Requests for an opportunity to write in the names of candidates for
two  or  more offices or positions may be included in the same petition.
Such petitions shall be subject to objections  and  court  determination
thereof  in  the  same  manner  as  designating  petitions so far as the
provisions therefor are applicable. All required notices shall be served
on the members of the committee named in the petition, AND SUCH  COMMIT-
TEE  SHALL  HAVE CAPACITY TO BRING A PROCEEDING UNDER THIS CHAPTER AS IF
SUCH COMMITTEE WAS A CANDIDATE NAMED ON A PETITION.   A signature  to  a
petition  for an opportunity to ballot in primary elections made earlier
than sixteen days before the last day to file designating petitions  for
the primary election shall not be counted.
  § 2. This act shall take effect on the fifteenth day of December after
it shall have become a law.
