Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)

Elections; meeting of electoral board following election; adjournment. Strikes "from day to day" to allow the board to adjourn, for example, from Wednesday to Friday for the review of provisional ballots. Present law allows the electoral board to adjourn from day to day up to seven days after the election to ascertain the results. The bill also allows the voter of a provisional ballot to request an extension without limiting the extension just "to the following day."
