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.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Changes the long title.
Amends GS 164-111(e1), making a clarifying change and deleting language that provided that if a plan for opening a limited number of precincts is approved by the State Board of Elections, and that approval comes before the date the ballots are printed for the primary, the county board of elections can open fewer than all of the precincts for voting during a second primary. Sets out four new requirements (deleting the three in the previous edition) that a plan must comply with, including requiring the plan to be submitted by the county board of elections to the State Board prior to December 1 of the calendar year before the election, and that the State Board must approve the plan prior to January 1 of the election year.
