Relating to voter registration.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
HB 2911 would amend multiple statutes of the Election Code to require the registrar, if an application clearly indicates that the applicant resides in another county, to forward the application to the other county's registrar not later than the second day after the date the application is received; require a copy of the original registration application containing the voter's original signature, for a registration application submitted by fax to be effective, to be submitted by personal delivery or mail and be received by the registrar not later than the fourth business day after the transmission by fax is received; require each voter registration certificate issued to contain certain information, including the year of the voter's birth (rather than the month and day, also); and require a voter's name, if the name is on the suspense list, to be deleted from the list on the date the voter provides a completed application to register to vote, among other things.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 2911 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
