Registered voters will begin receiving a postcard from the Indiana Secretary of State’s office this week as part of an effort to update voter rolls. “The Secretary of State is sending out a postcard to every registered voter,” Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey said Monday. “It is the first step in the process of identifying voters who have moved and not updated their registration.” When registered voters receive a postcard, they should look over the information and then decide how to respond, she said. “If the information is correct on it, you don’t have to do anything,” Coffey said.
If, however, the registered voter has changed name or moved, the voter will need to update the information. That’s as easy as stopping by the Election Board office at the third floor of the County Building, 20 N. Third St., Lafayette, or logging onto http://indianavoters.com and following the prompts to update the information, Coffey said.
On the other hand, if a postcard arrives at a residence where the name of the registered voter no longer lives, the person living there should write “return to sender,” and drop it in a mailbox, Coffey said.
A second postcard mailing is planned, and those receiving cards should follow the same procedures.
