The bill proposes an amendment to Section 17-4-11 of the General Laws in Chapter 17-4, which is concerned with "Federal Elective Officers." The amendment involves a change in the schedule for the meeting of presidential electors. The current law states that electors are to meet on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December following their election. The bill seeks to change this meeting day to the first Tuesday after the second Wednesday in December.

Additionally, the bill maintains the provision that if there is a vacancy among the electors due to death, refusal to act, neglect to attend, or any other cause, the present electors are to fill the vacancy by a roll call and a plurality of votes. The electors, once assembled or the vacancy filled, are to perform their duties as required by the Constitution and laws of the United States. The act is set to take effect upon passage.
