Processing, counting, and tabulating ballots.


Establishes definitions in election law relating to processing, counting, and tabulating ballots. Defines the process for retracting ballots. Provides that each paper ballot that is to be read by a machine must be marked with a code that permits the votes associated on the ballot to be retracted if a county's voting system has an approved feature that is able to retract a ballot. Provides that a voter who votes on a ballot that is to be scanned by a machine, whether the voter votes on election day or votes early, shall be permitted to place the voter's ballot into the ballot reading machine under the supervision of the precinct election board or the county election board. Provides that absentee ballots may not be tabulated before 6 p.m. on election day. Makes other changes to the statute describing the counting of absentee ballots to conform with these changes.
