CHEYENNE – The House of Representatives passed House Bill 52, “Timeline to prepare and process absentee ballots,” on third reading Thursday by a 46-13 vote.

The bill would allow county clerks leeway to begin processing absentee ballots before the polls close on Election Day. Rep. Jeremy Haroldson, R-Wheatland, proposed an amendment, which passed, that no person observing or preparation and the processing of absentee ballots would be allowed to have any personal electronic device, except for those for medical necessity, within 10 feet of where the process is occurring.
