WHAT IS IT?
The Notice of Voter Registration and Address Confirmation is a postcard sent by the City/County Clerk to all voters. The Notice:
1. Informs voters of their voting precinct and polling place during the election.
2. Confirms that voters are properly registered to vote in the district and precinct where they live.
WHO GETS IT?
A Notice of Voter Registration and Address Confirmation is sent to all registered voters at their residence address every election year.
A Notice of Voter Registration and Address Confirmation is also sent after each reapportionment and redistricting.
HOW DOES THE ADDRESS CONFIRMATION SYSTEM WORK?
If the address on the Notice of Voter Registration and Address Confirmation is correct, then the voter is properly registered and can vote without undue delays on election day.
If the address on the Notice is incorrect and it is returned to the Clerk as “undeliverable,” the voter is then flagged with a “QUESTIONABLE ADDRESS.”
On election day, any individual flagged with a “QUESTIONABLE ADDRESS” is required to complete a Registration Affidavit form (RAF) before voting is allowed. This process confirms the correct address of the voter.
