DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Challenges to a candidate's eligibility. Authorizes a challenge to a candidate's eligibility to seek an office to be filed by a registered voter of the jurisdiction conducting the election (rather than a registered voter of the election district the candidate seeks to represent). Requires a member of the election commission or a county or town election board who knows or learns of any facts that question a candidate's eligibility to: (1) file a challenge; and (2) appoint a proxy to participate in the commission's or election board's consideration of the challenge.
