Current Bill Summary

SB 787 - This act permits challengers at each polling place to be present at such polling place until all closing certification forms are completed, all equipment is closed and taken down, the transportation case for the ballots is sealed, election materials are returned to the election authority or to the designated collection place for a polling place, and any other duties or procedures required under current law are completed.

The act further permits challengers present at locations at which absentee ballots are counted to remain present while such ballots are being prepared for counting and counted.
