The bill extends various deadlines related to ballot access
requirements in 2020 due to public health concerns. Parties may amend
their bylaws as needed during 2020 to allow remote participation in
assemblies and conventions and to fill vacancies. Delegates to assemblies
may participate remotely if allowed by the party, and parties may reduce
or waive any quorum requirements to allow assemblies to proceed.

Members of vacancy committees may participate in meetings remotely if
allowed by the party, and parties may determine whether to allow proxies
at vacancy committee meetings. The ability of the state chair to fill a
vacancy is extended to situations in which the vacancy occurs because the
designation was not filled by the assembly or the vacancy committee. The
modifications are repealed effective December 31, 2020.
