New York State must replace its lever voting machines because they do not meet accessibility requirements of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and do not provide "second-choice" voting (voting machines must offer the opportunity to the voter to confirm his/her choice). New York State received a waiver to implement new voting machines until January 2006. The New York State Assembly and Senate introduced legislation in the 2004 session setting new voting machine standards in the New York State Election Law but did not agree on what those standards should be. A HAVA conference committee met during the spring of 2005 and eventually agreed on requirements and standards in June. Governor Pataki signed the legislation into law on July 12. The law permits local boards of election to DREs or optical scan equipment.
