Through the end of 2021, the act allows members of a party central committee or vacancy committee to participate in a committee meeting remotely, including by casting the member's vote by e-mail, mail, telephone, or through an internet-based application if allowed by the party's rules.
The act permits a state senate, state house of representatives, or county commissioner district committee to hold a meeting to address organizational or administrative matters separate from a meeting of the state or county central committee. A member of a district committee may participate in a separate meeting by remote means if such remote participation has been approved by the chair and vice-chair of the district committee.
The act permits a state party central committee or state party executive committee to adopt party rules or bylaws to implement the bill's remote participation provisions. The act also permits a member of the state party central committee or state party executive committee considering such rules or bylaws to participate remotely in a meeting in which the rules or bylaws are being considered.
