Fiscal Note (State Board of Elections)
Senate Bill 2273 would have no significant fiscal impact on the operations of the State Board of Elections. The Board is already a member of the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) due to previous legislation and all associated costs for our continued participation in ERIC have already been accounted for.
