In light of the Secretary of State’s recent announcement regarding the mailing to approximately 177,000 voters whose mailing addresses are flagged as undeliverable, County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver wants to reassure voters that they will not and cannot be removed from the voter rolls prior to the General Election this November.
Many news outlets have reported the SOS completed her federally-compliant mailing to these voters. The intent of the mailing is to ensure that voters that have both moved and also opt not to vote have the opportunity to remain on the rolls if they so choose. The voters receiving the postcard, which can be forwarded to their new mailing address by the post office, are being contacted in order to ensure they are registered where they currently live. By returning the postcard, voters can update their voter registration address. If they are not voting, responding to the mailing also gives these voters the opportunity to inform election officials they intend to remain on the voting rolls.
Voters included in the mailing would not be eligible for removal until the completion of 2 federal election cycles, in other words, not until 2015, if they do not respond to the mailing and also do not vote in 2012 or 2014.
