SB17-071: Voter Service And Polling Centers Early Voting General Election

Voting Rights
Bill Number: SB17-071
Year: 2017
ACLU Position: Oppose
Sponsors: J. Tate


For general elections, counties with at least 25,000 active electors
are currently required to designate at least one voter service and polling
center (VSPC) for each 30,000 active electors during the period of early
voting. The bill maintains this provision for the second 7 days of early
voting, but changes this figure for the first 7 days of early voting so that
at least one VSPC is required for each 75,000 active electors in those
For all counties, the bill also removes the requirement that VSPCs
be open on the first Saturday during the 15-day period prior to election
