  HB 47:  ABSENTEE BALLOTS - PRIMARY ELECTIONS                                 
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY read the title of HB 47 and invited comments.                 
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE PETE KOTT commented on line 28, page 2. He                    
  suggested inserting two words, "if applicable", in HB 47. He                 
  spoke of his understanding of HB 47 and requested more input                 
  from the Director of Elections, Charlotte Thickstun, who was                 
  present to testify.                                                          
                                                                               
  Number 111                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHARLOT THICKSTUN, DIRECTOR, DIVISION OF ELECTIONS,                          
  discussed her department's dislike of the bill and requested                 
  more time to compromise and make HB 47 workable.                             
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY stated HB 47 had not been placed in a                         
  subcommittee and asked for any comments from the committee.                  
                                                                               
  Number 136                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE KOTT asked Ms. Thickstun exactly what she                     
  would like to resolve.                                                       
                                                                               
  Number 143                                                                   
                                                                               
  MS. THICKSTUN wanted to eliminate any chance of litigations                  
  between parties with regard to ballots.                                      
                                                                               
  Number 157                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE HARLEY OLBERG stated it would be a good idea                  
  to pass this through central committees.                                     
                                                                               
  Number 169                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY asked if the committee would continue to work                 
  on HB 47, and if so, a volunteer was needed.  If not, the                    
  committee would like to pass HB 47 out, he added.                            
                                                                               
  Number 180                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE FRAN ULMER requested a proposed committee                     
  substitute (CS) be brought before the committee.                             
                                                                               
  Number 190                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY discussed Representative Sanders working with                 
  the Division of Elections on HB 47.                                          
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JERRY SANDERS agreed.
