The bill makes changes to the Uniform Election Code of 1992
(code), including changes to procedures for voter registration, ballot
access requirements, political party organization filing requirements,
procedures for emergency and in-person voting, requirements for the
content of an election plan, procedures for curing ballots, and
requirements for curing recall petitions. The formulas and hours for drop

boxes and voter service and polling centers are revised. The bill allows
a 17-year-old who is preregistered and who will be 18 on the date of the
next general election to vote in a primary, and allows a person to seek a
court order to keep polling locations open past the regular closing time on
election day when voting at or access to a polling location has been
substantially impaired. The bill makes additional technical changes and
corrections to the code.
