NOTE: Subdivision 2 was also amended by Laws 2010, chapter 184, section 7, to read as follows:
The absentee ballot board may examine all return absentee ballot envelopes and accept or reject absentee ballots in the manner provided in section 203B.12.
The absentee ballot board may begin the process of examining the return envelopes and marking them "accepted" or "rejected" at any time during the 45 days before the election. If an envelope has been rejected at least five days before the election, the ballots in the envelope must be considered spoiled ballots and the official in charge of the absentee ballot board shall provide the voter with a replacement absentee ballot and return envelope in place of the spoiled ballot."
