Elections; absentee voting procedures and provisional ballots for certain voters. Permits a voter who applied for but has not received an absentee ballot to vote a provisional ballot at his polling place upon his signed statement that he has not received or voted an absentee ballot. Current law requires that the voter who did not receive an absentee ballot and who lives in a locality that has established a central absentee voter precinct must be sent to that precinct to vote. This bill is identical to HB 685. Amends § 24.2-653.1, § 24.2-708, § 24.2-711, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
