Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)
Absentee ballot applications. Provides for the submission of applications for absentee ballots to local registrars through the official website of the State Board of Elections. The online application will contain all the information of the standard application, except for the signature requirement, plus a field for the applicant's e-mail address. The State Board website will e-mail the application automatically to the appropriate local registrar and generate an e-mail confirmation of receipt of the application to the applicant. The bill provides that an unsigned copy of the completed application will be sent with the ballot to the applicant. The absentee ballot will be counted only if the signed application is returned with the ballot.
