AN ACT to authorize the city of New  York  to  establish  an  electronic
  voter registration transmittal system for New York city residents; and
  providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision  of  law,  rule,  regu-
lation  or policy to the contrary, any municipal agency so authorized by
local law of the city of New York may establish and  maintain  an  elec-
tronic personal voter registration transmittal system for applicants who
are  New  York city residents. Such system may be established before the
establishment of any system otherwise authorized by law, and the  exist-
ence  of  the  system  authorized by this section shall not be deemed to
preclude New York city residents from  utilizing  any  system  otherwise
authorized  by  law.  Completed  applications  that  are filed using the
system authorized by this section, when  transmitted  to  the  board  of
elections  in  the  city  of  New  York not later than the twentieth day
before the next ensuing primary,  general  or  special  election,  shall
entitle the applicant to vote in such election provided the board deter-
mines  that  the applicant is otherwise qualified. Applications shall be
processed by such board in the manner prescribed in by section 5-210  of
the election law or, if the applicant is already registered to vote from
another  address  in New York state, in the manner prescribed by section
5-208 of the election law. Such board shall send the appropriate  notice
of  approval or rejection as required by either subdivision 9 of section
5-210 of the election law or subdivision  5  of  section  5-208  of  the
election  law. Such system may utilize an electronic or manual signature
that is in the custody of the department of motor  vehicles,  the  state
board  of  elections,  any  other  agency designated by section 5-211 or
