    • Photo ID requirement contained in Part 2 of Session Law 2013-381, as amended by Session Law 2015-103;
    • Removal of preregistration contained in Part 12 of Session Law 2013-381;
    • Elimination of same-day registration contained in Part 16 of Session Law 2013-381;
    • Changes to early voting contained in Part 25 of Session Law 2013-381; and
    • Elimination of out-of-precinct voting contained in Part 49 of Session Law 2013-381.
