Relating to the security of voted ballots.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3276 would require the general custodian of election records to implement a video surveillance system that retains a record of all areas containing voted ballots from the time the voted ballots are delivered to the central counting station until the canvass of precinct election returns. The video recorded is an election record under existing law and shall be retained by the general custodian of election records until the end of the calendar year in which an election is held.
The bill would require the general custodian of election records to provide a live video stream of any election activity to the website of the authority administering the election.
This bill uplifts the principles of individual liberty and limited government by strengthening the security and integrity of elections. We support HB 3276.
