News Update

On April 25, 2016, U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder issued an order upholding the entirety of Session Law 2013-381 (also known as "HB-589"). This bill and subsequent amendments imposed photo ID requirements and exceptions, compacted the early voting period, eliminated pre-registration and same-day registration, and required that voters present in their properly assigned precinct on election day.

The court decided to maintain same-day registration and out-of-precinct voting for the June Primary, though those options will not be available in the General Election. Plaintiffs in this case have filed an appeal. Therefore, additional changes may be ordered ahead of the General Election. So please be on the lookout for updates from the Board of Elections as this issue develops.
