Summary as introduced:
Vote by mail; pilot program. Provides that the Department of Elections shall develop a pilot program for conducting elections by mail.

The bill requires participating localities to provide a report on the pilot program in its locality to the State Board by December 1 of each year in which it participates. The bill requires the State Board to submit a report to the Governor, the General Assembly, and the House and Senate Committees on Privileges and Elections on the pilot program, including a recommendation as to whether all elections in the Commonwealth should be conducted by mail. The bill has an expiration date of December 31, 2021.
