State House discusses absentee voting bill

A bill that would change and restrict absentee voting in the state was up for debate in the state House of Representatives this week.  

Bill sponsor, Representative Scott Odenbach, said he wants to get ahead of potential problems.

Odenbach said there are several problems with voting early.

Representative Oren Lesmeister said they should take the time to listen to county auditors.

The bill failed on a deadlock vote of thirty-five to thirty-five. Odenbach then moved for reconsideration and the bill will be back for another vote in the next few days.
