AN ACT CONCERNING THE DELIVERY OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS BY THE TOWN CLERKS

SUMMARY: Existing law requires town clerks to deliver absentee ballots to registrars of voters for checking at specified times (e. g. , 12 p. m. and 6 p. m. ) throughout the day of a primary, election, or referendum. This act authorizes clerks and registrars to mutually agree on a later time or times, as long as the ballots are delivered by the close of polls (i. e. , 8: 00 p. m. ). If they do not agree on a later time, the clerks must deliver the ballots according to the schedule existing law sets.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
