Inactive Voters Have 2 Weeks To Stay Listed

Posted Monday, March 9, 2009 --- 7:50 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin voters who have not voted for at least four years have two weeks to respond to a notice sent to them last month by the state Government Accountability Board or they will be declared inactive.

The postcard was mailed to more than 313,000 Wisconsinites last month and tells then that if they want to be retained as active voters, they must respond to the agency by March 23. Voters who do not respond will be classified as inactive, which means, they will no longer be included on poll lists.

Elections Division Administrator Nat Robinson says the mailing includes a tear-off return postcard that contains an application that voters must sign and date. Voters who have changed their name or address in the last four years must reregister.
