Introduced by Rep. Bradford Jacobsen (R) on June 20, 2013 To require the Secretary of State to establish a “super voter precinct” pilot project, which means voters can vote at any area polling place in their area, not just the one to which they are assigned. This would require a reliable “electronic poll book” and the ability for polling places to update it in real time as people vote, for which the bill prescribes standards and procedures. The bill would also authorize local governments to consolidate election administration functions. Official Text and Analysis.
