Statement from Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on the passage of Senate Bills 117 and 757

"I am grateful for the bipartisan collaboration of Legislative leaders that enabled passage of Senate Bill 117 and Senate Bill 757. The former will ensure military service members and their families stationed overseas will be able to securely and efficiently return their ballots - an issue that is personal to me - and the latter is a step in the right direction to help ease the burden our clerks face in securely processing the significant number of absentee ballots we’re expecting citizens to cast this fall. 

Our thanks to Sens. Hollier and Johnson, Senate Majority Leader Shirkey and Speaker Chatfield for their shared commitment to protecting both our state’s election system and our voters, and their dedication to safe and secure elections.”
