2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would allow a person eligible to vote to register on the day of a municipal, primary or general election. Registration on the day of an election would take place at the applicant's polling place, and an applicant would be required to present an identifying document, complete a voter registration form, and sign an affidavit declaring that he or she is not already properly registered to vote, has lived in the county for at least 30 days, has not previously voted in the election being held on that day, and upon voting will not vote again in that election. A designee of the county commissioner of registration would then issue a temporary registration certificate to a qualified applicant, who would be permitted to vote by provisional ballot only. The bill also provides for investigation and verification of voters registered pursuant to this bill whose notification of voter registration is returned by the post office as undeliverable.
