SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)

Candidate withdrawal; notice of withdrawal; information to voters. Provides that a candidate who has qualified to have his name printed on the ballot for an election is not deemed to have withdrawn from such election until he has submitted a signed written notice declaring his intent to withdraw and that notice has been received by the general registrar. The Department of Elections is required to include in its candidate guidance documents the requirements and process for candidate withdrawal. The bill also provides that when ballots are not corrected to delete a candidate's name, the general registrar shall provide a list of candidates who have withdrawn to be posted in each polling place and made available to the public.
