AN  ACT  to  amend  the election law, in relation to providing bilingual
  voting materials

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

  Section  1. Legislative findings and declaration of policy. The legis-
lature finds that, through the use of various practices and  procedures,
citizens  of  language  minorities  have  been effectively excluded from
participation in the electoral process. Among other factors, the  denial
of  the  right  to  vote  of  such minority group citizens is ordinarily
directly related to the unequal educational opportunities afforded  them
resulting in high illiteracy and low voting participation.  The legisla-
ture  declares  that,  in  order to enforce the guarantees of the United
States Constitution, it is necessary to eliminate such discrimination by
prohibiting these practices, and by prescribing other remedial devices.
  S 2. The election law is amended by adding a new section 3-505 to read
as follows:
  S 3-505. BILINGUAL VOTING MATERIALS REQUIREMENT. 1. GENERALLY.  BEFORE
AUGUST SIXTH, TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN, NO COVERED STATE OR POLITICAL SUBDI-
VISION SHALL PROVIDE VOTING MATERIALS ONLY IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
  2. COVERED STATES AND POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS. (A) GENERALLY.  A  STATE
OR POLITICAL SUBDIVISION IS A COVERED STATE OR POLITICAL SUBDIVISION FOR
THE  PURPOSES  OF THIS SECTION IF THE DIRECTOR OF THE CENSUS DETERMINES,
BASED ON CENSUS DATA, THAT:
