Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Provides that if an application for a vote by mail ballot is sent to a post office box controlled by any individual or organization that is not an election authority, the applications shall be turned over to the appropriate election authority within 14 days of receipt. Provides that failure to turn over the applications in a timely manner constitutes a violation of the Code.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that applications for votes by mail shall include a valid and current phone number for the individual or organization controlling the post office box and be turned over to the appropriate election authority within 7 days of receipt or, if received within 2 weeks of the election in which an applicant intends to vote, within 2 days of receipt (rather than turned over with 14 days of receipt). Provides that failure to turn over the applications shall be punishable as a petty offense with a fine of $100 per application. Provides that removing, tampering with, or otherwise knowingly making the postmark on the application unreadable by the election authority shall establish a rebuttable presumption of a violation.
