Relating to early in-person voting by voters who reside at a residential care facility.
This bill would require that if five or more residents of a long term care residential facility (including a hospital) send mail-in ballot applications, an election judge shall bring ballots in person to the voters at the facility. The election judge would be responsible for assisting with filling in the ballot if necessary and serving as witness. The election judge would seal the ballots and deliver them to the early voting clerk. Certain requirements would be placed on the residential facility to help facilitate early voting at the facility including providing a space to conduct early voting, allowing required notices to be posted, and allowing an election judge to enter the private room of a resident of the facility.
