AN ACT to amend the election law, in relation to alternative  provisions

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

  Section 1. The election law is amended by adding a new  section  3-500
to read as follows:
  §  3-500.  ALTERNATIVE POLL SITE STAFFING PLAN. 1. NOTWITHSTANDING THE
PROVISIONS OF TITLE FOUR OF THIS  ARTICLE,  A  BOARD  OF  ELECTIONS  MAY
DESIGN  AN  ALTERNATIVE  POLL  SITE  STAFFING  PLAN  TO MORE EFFICIENTLY
CONDUCT AN ELECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS  SECTION.  SUCH  ALTERNATIVE
POLL SITE STAFFING PLAN MUST BE FILED WITH THE STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS.
  2.  AN  ALTERNATIVE  STAFFING  PLAN  SHALL  PROVIDE  FOR AT LEAST FOUR
INSPECTORS, EQUALLY DIVIDED AMONG THE MAJOR PARTIES, TO BE  ASSIGNED  TO
EACH  POLL SITE, AND ALL STAFFING MUST BE LIKEWISE BIPARTISAN. AN ALTER-
NATIVE STAFFING PLAN MAY CONSOLIDATE ELECTION  DISTRICT  AND  POLL  SITE
STAFFING  FUNCTIONS  TO EFFICIENTLY CONDUCT AN ELECTION PURSUANT TO THIS
CHAPTER, PROVIDED THE TABULATION OF VOTES BY ELECTION DISTRICT SHALL NOT
BE IMPAIRED UNLESS CONSOLIDATION OF ELECTION DISTRICTS FOR  AN  ELECTION
IS  OTHERWISE PERMITTED BY THIS CHAPTER, AND SUCH STAFFING PLAN COMPLIES
WITH 9 NYCRR 6210.19(C).
  § 2. This act shall take effect on the first of January next  succeed-
ing the date on which it shall have become a law.
