Current Bill Summary

SB 137 - Current law permits an election authority to remove a registered voter's name from the list of registered voters on the precinct register on the ground that the voter has changed residence under certain circumstances. This act requires such removal if:

• The voter confirms in writing that the voter has changed residence to a place outside the election authority's jurisdiction in which the voter is registered; or

• The voter fails to respond to a notice and has not engaged in voter activity during the period beginning on the date of the notice and ending on the day after the date of the second general election that occurs after the date of the notice.

The act additionally requires each election authority to investigate the qualifications of any person who has not engaged in voter activity within the preceding two calendar years. Furthermore, if the election authority determines that a registered voter has not engaged in voter activity within the two preceding calendar years, the election authority must include such registered voter in any canvass.
