Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Recounts and contests of elections; presidential elections. Revises the procedures for a recount and contest following a presidential election to shorten the timetable for both proceedings. The revised timetable will permit completion of the proceedings in time to comply with the federal law deadline for states to complete such procedures. Under that federal law, if the state law provides for a final decision on a presidential election at least six days before the date the electors are to meet, the state's determination is conclusive and cannot be challenged. The bill does not affect recount and contest proceedings in other elections.
