To Be Given To Legislature
Reasons Given For Changes
In North Carolina
Opening the handling of absen
tee balh.ts to full public scrutiny
is one way the State Hoard of F
lections proposes to curb absentee
voting abuses in North Carolina.
In final recommendations the
board also will ask the legislature
to fix the rules so that anyone
who wiould buy an absentee could
never be sure of its delivery.
Under the recommendations:
All absentee-ballot applica
tion forms would be passed upon
by the bipartisan county boards
