Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires that statements from candidates for election to the office of Governor be posted online. Under the bill, the Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) would provide each county clerk with a statement from each candidate for election to the office of Governor who wishes to provide a statement to the public. The bill would require county clerks, the Division of Elections, and ELEC to post those statements on their respective Internet websites in a conspicuous location, and to make the statements available as a hardcopy upon request. Under current law, ELEC provides each county clerk with statements submitted by candidates for election to the office of Governor, which the county clerks then print and mail to each registered voter with the sample ballot for the general election.
