  4.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, beginning January 1, 2023, voters may declare political party affiliation during the voter check-in process at any election.  Appropriate software shall be provided at voter check-in for political party affiliation so as to minimize later data entry for election authorities.  If the election authority does not use electronic poll books, then a signed, written notice in substantially the same manner as a change of address application is filed under section 115.165 is adequate.  The election authority shall process this initial political party registration through its normal means of administration.

  5.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, all current processes for registering voters in the various counties shall remain in place.
