Casting provisional ballot by challenged voter. Establishes additional standards for the challenging of voters by specifying that, except for party affiliation challenges in a primary election, a person may not challenge the right of an individual to vote at an election solely on the basis of the individual's: (1) actual or perceived affiliation with a political party; or (2) support or opposition to a candidate or the adoption of a public question. Provides that a voter who is challenged as ineligible to vote in the precinct must be provided with a provisional ballot. Relocates current law prohibiting challenges based solely on a person's status as a student or registration at an address in college provided housing to the new chapter concerning challenge standards. Repeals a superseded provision relating to voting by a challenged voter. Makes conforming amendments.
