SB 1459 Elections; voter identification & absentee voting process for applying for absentee ballots. Introduced by: Thomas K. Norment, Jr. | all patrons … notes | add to my profiles SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED: Conduct of elections; voter identification and absentee voting; process for applying for, casting, and counting absentee ballots.
