- Allows UOCAVA (military and overseas) voters to vote in primaries and general elections by ranked-choice so that in the case of a primary or general election runoff, their vote in the runoff can be determined from their separate “special” ranked-choice ballot—that they submit at the same time as their regular ballot—instead of requiring UOCAVA voters to submit another absentee ballot for the runoff.
- Mandates that all runoff elections, federal and state, will be held just 28 days after primary or general elections.
- This bill is impractical, un-administrable, and has a poorly-drafted provision to schedule all runoff elections just 28 days after general elections.
