Description

Ballots cast during court-ordered extended polling hours. Provides that at an election without a federal office on the ballot, if the polling hours are extended by a court order, persons who are voting during the extended polling hours shall be permitted to vote a regular ballot. The bill requires that such persons be marked in the pollbook as having voted during the extended polling hours and that such ballots be kept separate from ballots cast during normal polling hours. Under current law, whenever polling hours are extended by a court order, ballots cast by persons who are voting during the extended polling hours are treated as provisional ballots. The bill makes this current law applicable only to elections with a federal office on the ballot, in accordance with the requirements of the Help America Vote Act of 2002. Read the Bill »
