CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 935


Introduced by Senator Allen

January 25, 2018


An act to amend Section 14217 of the Elections Code, relating to elections.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 935, as introduced, Allen. Provisional ballots.
Existing law provides that a voter is entitled to cast a provisional ballot if his or her qualification or entitlement to vote cannot be immediately established. If a precinct board is unable to find a voter’s name on the roster on the day of an election, existing law requires the precinct board to inform the voter that he or she may cast a provisional ballot and, if the voter elects to do so, furnish the voter with the provisional ballot.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 14217 of the Elections Code is amended to read:

14217.
 If the precinct board is unable to find a voter’s name upon on the roster, it shall inform the voter that he or she may cast a provisional ballot and the procedure for doing so. If the voter elects to cast a provisional ballot, the precinct board shall furnish the voter with a provisional ballot, ballot in accordance with Section 14310.
