SB 74 – Increased access for poll watchers bill

SB 74 – Increased access for poll watchers bill

Sponsored by: Senator Jeff Mullins, et al

Summary:

  • Provides poll watchers access to all areas of the tabulation center (where ballots and election results are received and processed). 
  • The local elections officials are allowed to restrict the movement and activity of poll watchers in the center in order to ensure the security of ballots, but these restrictions should be as minimal as possible. 
  • This bill incorrectly protects poll observers, and not local elections officials, who are subject to ongoing intimidation and harassment
