This bill permits person who will be 17 years old on date of primary election and 18 years old on date of general election to vote at primary election for candidates of major political party with which person is affiliated if major political party has adopted rule to this effect.

Appropriates moneys from General Fund to Secretary of State for purpose of printing and counting additional ballots.

What a nightmare to administer correctly. Over 5,000 received double ballots that are known, and no amount of money will prevent fraud when the system enables it.
