In-Person Absentee Voting Made Easier

A new law will make the in-person absentee voting process a better experience for all involved. The 2016 omnibus elections law includes a League-supported provision that allows in-person absentee voters to place their ballots into a tabulator, just like they would on Election Day. Previously absentee ballots were not processed until after the voter left the building. The change will increase efficiency and reduce the potential for error.
