Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation requires counties to have at least one advance voting location for each 150,000 electors in the county.  It requires that no elector have to go more than 25 miles to a polling place using the most direct rout of travel from the elector's residence.  Any precincts with polling places requiring more than 25 miles of travel would be required to divide or have the polling place relocated.  HB 180 prohibits changing a polling place within 90 days of an election or primary except in the case of emergency or unavoidable event.  It also allows voters to change their addresses and vote on election or primary days.
