DIGEST OF SB132 (Updated January 23, 2007 2:40 pm - DI 84)

Petition and remonstrance process. Allows registered voters and owners of real property to participate when a political subdivision conducts a petition and remonstrance process to approve a bond issue or a lease rental. (Current law allows only the owners of real property to sign a petition or a remonstrance.) Requires the petitions to be filed with the county voter registration office, rather than the county auditor. Specifies the dates by which an individual must be a registered voter in order to participate in the petition and remonstrance process. Specifies that whenever the name of an individual who signs a petition or remonstrance as a registered voter contains a minor variation from the name of the individual as set forth in the records of the county voter registration office, the signature is presumed to be valid and there is a presumption that the individual is entitled to sign the petition or remonstrance. Specifies that in determining whether an individual is a registered voter, the county voter registration office shall apply the requirements and procedures used under the election law, but provides that an individual is not required to comply with the provisions concerning providing proof of identification. Provides that if a petition is presented to a county voter registration office within 35 days of an election, the county voter registration office may defer acting on the petition until after the election.
