The Idaho House state affairs committee introduced a bill in a 6-3 vote Feb. 23 that would limit who can apply for an absentee ballot.

It would restrict absentee requests to people in the military, in a hospital or infirmed, with disabilities, away on a religious mission, temporarily living in another state, in school or unable to get away from work.
