(Chuck Muth) –Clark County – and I’m assuming all the other counties – have mailed out the required voter registration verification postcards (see below).
Those that are returned to the post office as “undeliverable” will be moved from “active” to “inactive” on the voter rolls. Which means they will NOT automatically be mailed a ballot next year.
And that will greatly reduce the *potential* for voting fraud. However…
I’ve already received one report from a voter who advises she received TWO registration cards (duplicate).
Upon investigation, the reason was a simple data error. One registration shows her date of birth as 1945 and the other shows 1946.
This is an easy fix now that we know about it. Which is why it’s so important for you to report anything similar at your home.
Others will surely receive postcards in their mailbox for people who no longer live there but the card was NOT returned by the post office for one reason or the other. If so, here’s how you can help us clean up the voter rolls…
1.) If the registration card is YOURS and your address has changed, all you need to do is fill out the postcard with your new address and pop it back in the mail. Or…
2.) You can change the address online at www.clarkcountynv.gov/vote. To do so, you’ll need to provide your driver’s license number.
Now, if you receive a registration card that is NOT yours and the person no longer lives there, here’s what you can do…
Scan the side of the postcard showing all the voter information (address, issue date, precinct number, etc.) – or use your cell phone to take a CLEAR picture of it – and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include in the email your name and contact information along with a brief explanation of why the registration is for someone who doesn’t live at your address any longer.
Something as simple as: “This person moved out of this address two years ago.”
Or: “I’m not sure why this was mailed to my address, but the person does not live here.”
We’ll then research the registration, confirm the information, and submit a “Non-Resident Report” to the Election Department for you.
Ditto if the person is deceased – though that’s a different report we’ll submit to the Election Department after verifying the death.
We’re continuing to do the work to clean up the voter files using the data we have access to. However, sometimes things slip through the cracks.
With your help, we’ll be able to better clean up the voter files with the information you provide that we might otherwise miss. So…
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“We know, and I guarantee you’ll agree, the voter rolls are not clean. You can ask the person next to you if they’re aware of somebody [who] moved out of the house two years ago and they’re still getting their ballots, and that ballot’s still available for anybody to grab and take the chance of filling it out.” – Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo
