    Enacts new GS 163-227.2(a2) to require every individual staffing a one-stop voting site to meet the same qualifications and requirements as individuals that are appointed as precinct officials under GS 163-41. However, provides that such individuals are not required to be residents of a specific precinct.

    Amends GS 163-227.2(g) to require that employees staffing absentee ballot sites are either full-time employees of the county board of elections or an employee of the county board of elections that meets the requirements of GS 163-227(a2), as outlined above, and has received training equivalent to that given to a full-time employee (previously, could be an employee that had only been given training equivalent to that given to a full-time employee).
