A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to requiring notice on former poll sites.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
      Section 1. Chapter 46 of the New York city charter is amended by adding a new section 1057-c, to read as follows:
§ 1057-c Notice at former poll sites. On the day of any primary, special, or general election, prior to the opening of the polls, the board of elections shall post a notice on or near the main entrance or entrances of each building that was used as a poll site in any primary, special, or general election in any of the four calendar years prior to such day, but which is not being used as a poll site for the election being held on such day. Such notice shall only be required at former poll sites that covered one or more election districts in which an election is being held on such day. Such notice shall include, but not be limited to: (i) a statement that the building is not in use as a poll site for such election, (ii) the address or addresses of the poll site or sites that are being used for such election, accompanied by a list of the election districts being served at each such poll site; (iii) the website for the board of elections' official poll site locator; and (iv) the board of elections phone number that may be called for poll site information.
      § 2. This local law shall take effect sixty days after its enactment.
