House passes rep area election change notification bill

A bill adjusting the notification procedures of boundary changes to local representation areas passed its legislative chamber of origin.


Members of the House and Local Government committee unanimously passed HB 1036, which requires a local election official to notify their county auditor of any external boundary changes prior to local election.


HB 1036 would require – in even numbered years – a district’s business manager notify their district’s county auditor of any external boundary changes to representation areas that have been made at least 100 days prior to a general election.


Secretary of State Shantel Krebs said the process of attaching a voter to a local voting precinct takes essentially 90 days and the bill provides them time enough to adjust for changes made.


ASBSD is monitoring the bill.


HB 1036 now moves to the Senate for review. For updates, check the ASBSD BlogTwitter feed and Bill Tracker.
