Senator Arnie Stuthman of Platte Center feels it’s a waste of time to have the Secretary of State prepare an annual election guide for election workers. He says the counties are doing a good enough job educating election commissioners. However, Senator Robert Giese (gee-see) says preparing a statewide guide online will help educate local workers at election time. He says says there have been numerous instances of county election workers not knowing the law and therefore mistakes have happened on election day. Giese worried they are getting the wrong information.
“In some cases these materials may be seriously outdated or inadequate for the needs of the particular election official.”
This bill failed to pass on first round.
