Amends GS 163A-1303, as amended by SL 2018-112, adding new subsection (d), allowing a county board of elections in a county which includes a barrier island and meets the four specified requirements, including that it has no bridge to the mainland, to propose a Plan for Implementation, by unanimous vote of the board, providing for a site in that county for absentee ballots to be cast with days and hours that vary from the county board of elections. If the county board cannot reach unanimity, members of the county board may petition the State Board to adopt a plan for the county. Any Plan approved under this subsection must provide for a uniform location, days, and hours for that site throughout the absentee ballot voting period.
