HB2860 by Swanson (Relating to maintaining certain voter registration information and reviewing ballots voted by mail; creating criminal offenses.), As Introduced
The bill would create state jail felony offenses for failing to comply with certain requirements related to maintaining certain voter registration information and reviewing ballots voted by mail.
Creating a new criminal offense may result in an increase in demands upon state and local correctional resources due to a possible increase in the number of individuals placed under supervision in the community or sentenced to a term of confinement.
It is assumed that any impact on state correctional populations or on the demand for state correctional resources would not be significant.
