The forms that NY state provides are general forms. You can try and insert the other organizer's name and signature but the department of state may reject your submission. An attorney can draft customized articles of organization.

Usually the Certificate of Formation is only signed by the person registering the LLC, notwithstanding the number of actual members. Anyone can sign it - one of the members, an attorney, or even an outside entity assisting in the formation.
