Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Current law requires counties to provide one voting machine for each 250 electors for all elections.  This bill still requires that ratio for general elections, but allows counties flexibility to reduce the amount of voting machines for other elections based on expected turnout, type of election, length of ballot, advanced voting and other factors.  Also, counties which have precincts where voters experience longer than an hour wait time for an election must take measures to reduce that wait time by the next election by either reducing the size of the precinct or adding additional voting machines.  The bill makes several other changes to clean up election law.  For a brief summary of the bill, please click here.
