Measure Title: RELATING TO ABSENTEE BALLOTS.
Report Title: Office of Elections Package; Absentee Ballots; Electronic Transmission
Description: Allows a permanent absentee voter to temporarily receive a ballot at an alternate address for elections within an election cycle.

Replaces references to facsimile ballots with references to electronically transmitted ballots. Allows a voter to receive an absentee ballot by electronic transmission if the voter requires such a ballot within five days of an election, or the voter would otherwise not be able to return a properly issued ballot by the close of polls.
