Email Added to Overseas Absentee Voting Act

Senate Bill 458, coauthored by Rep. Jason Nelson, passed the House of Representatives today 92-0.

SB 458 relates to the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act of 1986.

The measure provides that the secretary of the county election board may transmit balloting materials to an electronic mail address if the voter is a federal postcard application registrant, is eligible to receive an absentee ballot, provides a current address that is located outside the United States and an electronic mail address, and requests that balloting materials be sent by electronic mail.

"This bill will make it easier for our men and women in the armed services to excersize their right to vote."
