DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Electronic poll lists. Permits a county election board to adopt an order, under certain conditions, approving the use of an electronic poll list in each precinct of the county. Permits a county election board in a county that: (1) counts absentee ballots at a central location; and (2) uses electronic poll lists; to update the poll lists electronically to indicate that an absentee ballot of a voter in a precinct has been received by the county election board (rather than deliver certified lists of the absentee voters' names to each precinct election board on election day to allow that precinct's inspector to mark the poll list). Allows a challenge that would have been made at the polls, if the poll lists had not been updated electronically, to be made at the central location by challengers and pollbook holders appointed for that purpose.
