Adopted 2/23/2006



    I move
that Engrossed House Bill 1011 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 72, line 31; (06)MO101112.72. -->     Page 72, between lines 31 and 32, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 3-12-1-17; (06)MO101112.124. -->     "SECTION 124. IC 3-12-1-17 IS ADDED TO THE INDIANA CODE AS A NEW SECTION TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 17. (a) This section applies only to an absentee ballot sent by mail.
    (b) Notwithstanding IC 3-11-10-14 and IC 3-11.5-4-10, an absentee ballot received from an overseas voter is not considered as arriving too late if both of the following apply:
        (1) The absentee ballot envelope is postmarked not later than the date of the election.
        (2) The absentee ballot is received not later than the deadline for counting provisional ballots under IC 3-11.7-5-1.
    (c) If the postmark on the absentee ballot envelope is unclear, the county election board, by unanimous vote of the entire membership of the board, determines the postmark date. If the board is unable to determine the postmark date, the absentee ballot may not be counted.
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
