"Sec. 501. Subsections (g) and (h) of section 9-19j of the general statutes are repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

(g) The elector shall forthwith mark the election day registration ballot in the presence of the registrars of voters in such a manner that the registrars of voters shall not know how the election day registration ballot is marked. The elector shall place the election day registration ballot in the election day registration ballot envelope provided, and deposit such envelope in a secured election day registration ballot depository receptacle. [At the time designated by the registrars of voters and noticed to election officials, the registrars of voters shall transport such receptacle containing the election day registration ballots to the area, either district or central, where absentee ballots are counted and such election day registration ballots shall be counted by the election officials present at such location. ] The provisions of the general statutes and regulations concerning the counting of provisional ballots shall apply as nearly as possible to the counting of election day registration ballots under this subsection. A section of the head moderator's return shall show the number of election day registration ballots received from electors. The registrars of voters shall seal a copy of the vote tally for election day registration ballots in a depository envelope with the election day registration ballots and store such election day registration depository envelope with the other election results materials. The election day registration depository envelope shall be preserved by the registrars of voters for the period of time required to preserve counted ballots for elections.

(h) The provisions of the general statutes and regulations concerning procedures relating to the custody [,] and control [and counting] of absentee ballots shall apply as nearly as possible, to the custody [,] and control [and counting] of election day registration ballots under subsections (a) to (i), inclusive, of this section. "

This act shall take effect as follows and shall amend the following sections:
