The bill would reduce the number of in-person early voting days from 35 days to 25 days.
Lawmakers are debating a measure that would reduce the number of days registered voters may cast their ballots in-person.
The bill would reduce the number of in-person early voting days from 35 days to 25 days. Mail-in and absentee ballots will still be accepted 35 days before an election.
Senator Scott Lautenbaugh says he brought the bill because election officials need more time to program specialized voting machines for visually impaired voters. The electronic machines assist voters with disabilities in casting their ballots privately.
Several lawmakers said moving the date back 10 days isn't the best solution.
A blind woman filed a complaint after she was unable to vote because the voting machines weren't set up two days after early voting polls opened last year.
