Governor Signs Additional Absentee Voting Legislation

Late on Friday, the Governor signed the final piece of legislation related to voting by absentee ballot for the November election. S.8370B (Myrie)/A.10830 (Lavine), a bill to allow voters to address issues with their absentee ballots so that their vote can be counted, was finally signed into law. The bill would mandate voters receive notice if their ballot is being challenged because of an issue with their signature or witness declaration. Voters would be alerted by email, phone, and/or mail depending on the availability of personal information, and would have 7 to respond to address the challenge. 

Because of the short timeline for counties to adjust to this new law, and the need to certify the 2020 election results in time for the convening of the electoral college, the Governor has issued a limited Executive Order to reduce the number of days to respond to challenges from 7 to 5. This change will only be in effect for the 2020 election. 

Voters requesting an absentee ballot should be sure to include their current email address and phone number in their request form. The League will be creating additional educational materials on how the cure process will work as more information becomes available.
