Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Absentee ballot applications and procedures. Provides that an applicant for an absentee ballot who applies in person when the printed ballot for the election is available may choose, if at least five days remain before the election, to have the absentee ballot mailed to him rather than voting the absentee ballot in person at the general registrar's office or other authorized site. Current law specifies that an applicant who applies in person for an absentee ballot must vote in person at that time and does not allow election officials to mail the ballot to the applicant.
