    Amends GS 163A-1300(b) by extending the period for early voting to 5:00 p.m. on the last Saturday before an election (formerly 7:00 p.m. on the last Friday). One-stop voting will be held from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on that Saturday. Adds a provision to GS 163A-1303 to allow a county board of elections to request a variation in the hours of operation for one-stop voting sites; the change will take effect only if approved by unanimous vote of all State Board of Elections members. Clarifies that one-stop sites operating on Saturdays, other than the last Saturday before an election, must hold uniform hours within a county.
