New Voter Cards for Macoupin County Arriving
Fri, 11 Nov 2011 10:49:52 CST
Pete Duncan, Macoupin County Clerk, has announced that new voter cards should be arriving now for every registered voter in the county.
This move will accomplish two requirements of the Elections Office. It will be the first time in five yearsw that a major maintenance mailing will be done, helping to correct the voter file, and will give all voters a list of their new districts after redistricting. Redistricting is the process done every ten years where the legislative districts are redrawn based on new census numbers.
Duncan says the maintence mailing will help remove voters who no longer live in the address they are listed at in the voter file. Cleaning the voter file of these no longer valid voters will ensure accuracy of the voter list, help speed up Election Day sign-ins by shortening the list given to judges, and reduce costs in the election budget.
Voters should be sure to check that their name and address are correct on the card, make sure the districts listed on the card are the districts they are entitled to vote in and be sure to send back any cards that are for previous occupants.
Any questions can be directed to the Macoupin County Clerk‘s Office at 217-854-3214, extension 707.
