Petition carriers. Requires an individual who circulates a petition that is required to place a candidate or a public question on the ballot to provide on each signature page of the petition: (1) the individual's identification information; and (2) a signed affirmation, under penalties of perjury, that the individual has no reason to believe that any signer on the page is ineligible to sign the petition or did not properly complete and sign the page. Provides that a signature page that does not comply with these requirements must be received for filing and retained as other election materials are retained. Provides that a county voter registration office (office) does not determine the validity of the signatures on a signature page. Requires the office to notify the petition carrier, if the office determines that a signature page submitted by the petition carrier does not comply with this chapter, and to allow certain additions and corrections to the signature page. Permits a challenge to the placement on the ballot of a candidate or public question that files signature pages that do not meet these requirements. Requires the census data advisory committee to study the issue of electioneering at the polls and other places where voting occurs and to make any recommendations for appropriate legislation.
