Title: Prohibits Curbside Voting

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that prohibits election workers from setting up curbside voting.

Highlights:

 

  • Prohibits an electronic voting machine, or voting machine of any kind, from being installed or operated except as designated for installation and operation during an election within the interior of an enclosed building designated as a voting place (Sec. 1.a).

  • Prohibits an election officer or poll worker from taking a ballot into or out of any voting place, except in the performance of his or her authorized or official duties that include only the pre-election and post-election transporting of ballots to and from voting places as part of established election procedures (Sec. 1.a).

  • Requires a judge of probate to publish a notice that describes the election precincts by their numbers and specifies the place therein where elections are to be held (Sec. 1.b).

  • Prohibits a voter in any election held thereafter from voting at any place other than the voting district in which the voter at the time is registered as a qualified elector (Sec. 1.c).

  • Prohibits the voting places for precincts from being changed within 3 months before an election is to be held. When the boundaries of election precincts are changed, the county governing body will designate and establish at least one voting place for every 2,400 voters in each election precinct (Sec. 1.d).

  • Requires voting places to be the same for all elections, whether primary, general, or special, or federal, state, district, or county (Sec. 1.d).

  • Establishes the courthouse as the voting place in the precinct in which it is situated unless another place for that purpose is designated by the county governing body. Elections must be held at places in the other precincts as may be designated by the county governing body (Sec. 1.e).
