Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill mandates that the local board of registrars or absentee ballot clerks mail absentee ballots, and return envelopes, to all eligible voters for each presidential preference primary, general primary, general election, and special primary and special election where there is a candidate for a federal office on the ballot.  Absentee ballots must be mailed no more than 49 days but not less than 45 days prior to each election.   Shorter time periods apply to municipal other special elections.  Voters would still be eligible for advance and election day voting in person.
