DIGEST OF HB1190 (Updated April 26, 2011 2:43 pm - DI 84)


Ballots and voting systems. Provides that school board offices must be placed on the ballot under a nonpartisan title. Requires that: (1) local public questions be placed on a primary election ballot after the voting instructions and before the offices with candidates for nomination; and (2) public questions be placed on a general election ballot after the voting instructions and before the offices on the ballot. For ballot card voting systems and electronic voting systems, removes a requirement that school board offices, public questions concerning the retention of a justice or judge, local nonpartisan judicial offices, and local public questions be placed at the beginning of separate columns or pages on a general election ballot. Removes the requirement that a sample ballot must be an exact copy of the official ballot and requires a sample ballot to be altered so that marks on the sample ballot cannot be counted as votes. Provides that a county election board may require its voting system to display a ballot number or other designation that uniquely identifies the candidates. (Under current law, voting systems are required to display such a unique number or designation.) Repeals an obsolete statute relating to voting machines.
