[lpny_manhattan] RE: [ManhattanLibertarians] Re: New York Election DOES NOT STATE that the witness to a petitions must be a member of a political party

However, the residency requirement is in the same sentence as the
requirement that a witness must be a member of the same political party and
the same logic and reasoning applies. Nevertheless, the statute has not
been amended or changed and they read the sentence in full in the hearing
before Judge Wooten yesterday.
