Retro HAVA 30 Day Notice FAQ final 10-11-10.pdf41.45 KB

I am writing to give you an update on the voters who were sent a DMV Ping Letter, and whose letter was returned as undeliverable. 

30 Day Notice letters were mailed October 7, 2010 to 12,780 voters from the Retroactive HAVA Check project.. These voters were mailed a DMV Ping Letter but it was returned as undeliverable.  The letter asks the voter to respond within 30 days if they would like to remain registered at their current address. 

If they have moved or changed their name, they are asked to re-register with their local municipal clerk.  This is why we want to give you a heads-up so you and your staff will not be caught off guard if you see an increase in voters contacting your office for re-registration.

Voters whose 30 Day Notice letter is returned as undeliverable, or who do not respond to the letter, will be marked inactive in SVRS by Board staff.  Undeliverables will be marked inactive immediately and should not appear on poll lists for the November General Election, while non-responders will be marked inactive after November 7, 2010.  Voters who request continuation or registration at their current address, or who reregister, will remain active.

A Frequently Asked Questions document has been posted to the G.A.B. website, attached below.  Clerks are encouraged to review the document for further information on the letters, and to assist in responding if they are contacted by a voter who receives one of these letters.

Please contact the G.A.B. Help Desk at (608) 261-2028 or GABHelpDesk@wi.gov if you have any questions regarding this process. As usual, thank you in advance for your cooperation.
