Section 1 of the bill clarifies that any elector who has preregistered
to vote who is 17 years of age on the date of a precinct caucus and who
will be 18 years of age on the date of the next general election may either
vote at any caucus, assembly, or convention or be elected as a delegate to
any assembly or convention even though the elector has been affiliated

with the political party for less than 22 days.
Section 2 changes the period a candidate for precinct
committeeperson must have been a resident of the precinct from 30 days
to 22 days before the caucus. The bill also changes the period during

requirements in current law specifies that any person who has attained the

changes each of these 2-month deadlines to 22 days.
