The Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.) traditionally provides each year in November a consolidated calendar of election administration events for local election officials to use to plan for the coming year. Many of you have come to rely on this calendar as your definitive source for election information and deadlines. This year the calendar was delayed due to pending legislation that made significant changes to the fall election schedule, SB-116. At the time of this memo, this bill is on the Governor’s desk and is not yet signed. In anticipation of this law being signed, the staff has compiled the calendar with the various changes of SB-116 already incorporated. If SB-116 should not be signed as enrolled, the G.A.B. will produce a revised calendar.
This year the staff has taken the additional step of providing the calendar in multiple formats including Adobe Acrobat, Word, and Excel for your convenience. Instructions are available at the G.A.B. website for importing the Excel spreadsheet into different versions of Microsoft Outlook’s Calendar.
