Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation allows election superintendents to begin processing and tabulating early voting DRE ballots after 6:00 p.m. on the date of a primary, election or runoff.  Currently, only absentee ballots can be tabulated prior to the closing of the polls on election day.  No results from these ballots shall be transmitted by modem or other devise prior to the close of the polls.  The bill also closes the City of Atlanta's polls at 7:00 p.m. - that currently stay open until 8:00 p.m.  Lastly, the bill establishes the weekend days for early voting as either the third Saturday or Sunday, but not both, prior to a primary or general election during the hours of 9:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m.
