Among the many recommendations contained in the report from the Moreland Commission is one to dismantle the New York State Board of Elections, which the commission members called an abject failure in its oversight and enforcement of state election laws. The board would be replaced by a new watchdog agency to be headed by a person appointed for a five-year term by the governor and confirmed by the state senate.
