Legislation is being drafted reference to absentee ballots : (b)
In a political subdivision in which the polls open later than seven a.m.
voters may if the board of civil authority so votes, apply in person at
the polling place for absentee ballots between the hours of seven a/m.
and the time the polls open. In this case the presiding officer or
designee shall furnish the ballots when a valid application for early
voter absentee ballots is received. The applicant shall mark his or her
ballots, seal them in the envelope, sign the certificate and return the
ballots in the sealed envelope to the presiding officer or designee,
without leaving the polling placed.
The board of civil authority may subdivide the checklist
into lists of active and inactive voters.The list of inactive voters
shall contain the names and addresses of voters who failed to respond to
the notice sent pursuant to subdivision (d) (3) of section 2150 of this
title, whose names have not been removed from the checklist. The names of
the remaining voters shall be included in the list of active voters.
