As anything you want and be counted as such only if you have never been registered here at all previously. but only if you have never registered in NY before, and you have your application postmarked and sent in by 3/25/2016. they will then enter that field for you (in theory anyway)
But they said these days (don't know for how long) there are now rules that are different, for already registered NYS residents - if you are already in the system, no matter how they changed it or not, this year to fix it you would have had to re-register very early on, it was sometime early in October I think.
I assume That is was around then that the establishment made the changes, then changed the system to keep us from fixing it in time.
I called earlier but thought my screw up was unique, they did bother to send me a brand spanking new card however with the D missing, how thoughtful of them.
