Prohibits Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Schools (CMS) from being used for early one-stop voting locations without the prior consent of the CMS Superintendent, who must have up to five school operating days to grant or deny consent. Requires the CMS Superintendent to grant consent if the school building is or can be configured to provide a separate entrance and exit for voters and barriers to keep voters from accessing areas of the school where students have access during operating hours. Requires payment or reimbursement for costs to prepare and maintain the school building for safety to be paid or reimbursed by the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections. Applies to elections held on or after the date the act becomes law.
