Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Absentee ballots for persons registered temporarily for federal elections. Provides that the electoral board, rather than the general registrar, will provide the absentee ballots to those registered temporarily for federal elections. Generally, under the election laws, the general registrar has responsibilities for registration procedures and the electoral board oversees the ballot process. This change reflects that general policy. Under the proposed bill, the electoral board will have primary responsibility for the ballots and will be able to delegate those responsibilities, as appropriate, to the general registrar in accordance with instructions from the State Board of Elections.
