Lee County Supervisor of Elections Staff is Busy with List Maintenance Requirements
Lee County, FL (June 15, 2017) On Tuesday, June 13th, the Lee County Supervisor of Elections mailed out approximately 58,000 Address Confirmation Request notices as part of our biennial (every 2 years) list maintenance program requirement. The notice was sent to voters who did not vote in the last 2 years and had not made a written request to update their voter record during that time.
Florida Election Law requires during odd numbered years, each Supervisor of Elections, complete a mandatory, uniform and non-discriminatory voter registration List Maintenance program. The purpose of the program is to maintain accurate and current voter rolls and determine voter eligibility events triggered by activities that indicate either a change in a voter’s address of legal residence or a change in the voter’s eligibility.
For example, during the List Maintenance process, voters identified as having moved outside of the state, are mailed an official notice. A voter that does not respond to the notice within 30 days, will be designated as inactive. If a voter that has been designated as inactive does not update his or her voter registration information, request a vote-by-mail ballot, or vote by the second general election after being placed on the inactive list, the voter is removed from the voter rolls.
Lee County Supervisor of Elections staff will individually process every one of the returned notices. We have already received 17 trays of returned Address Confirmation Request notices and this is just the beginning.
It is always busy at the Lee County Supervisor of Elections Office.
