AN ACT TO PERMIT COUNTIES TO USE THE VOTE CENTER CONCEPT FOR SECOND PRIMARIES, WHERE ONLY THE EARLY VOTING SITES FOR THE FIRST PRIMARY ARE OPEN ON THE DAY OF THE SECOND PRIMARY RATHER THAN THE NORMAL ELECTION DAY POLLING PLACES.
Amends GS 163-111 to allow a county board of elections to file a plan with the State Board of Elections (State Board) to provide for a limited number of precincts to be opened during a potential second primary. If the State Board approves the plan before ballots are printed for the primary, the county board of elections may open fewer than all of the precincts for voting during a second primary as stated in the approved plan. Requires that the plan: (1) be submitted to the State Board no later than 90 days before the primary, (2) not provide for more than the number of early absentee voting sites and the county board of elections office to be open for voting during the second primary, and (3) provide for voter education as to the voting places to be open during the second primary.
Effective January 1, 2014, and applies to elections held on or after that date.
