SAFFORD — The Graham County Recorder’s Office is working on a federal requirement to update the voter registration rolls for the 2018 election cycle.
“In doing so, our office will be sending out election notices to every registered voter,” said Graham County Recorder Wendy John.
About 18,000 notices will be mailed during the month of May and will be recognized by the “Official Election Mail” logo on the outside of the envelope.
Voters who find any incorrect information are asked to update voter registration information by going to www.servicearizona.com or by completing a new voter registration form.
Registration forms can be picked up at the Recorder’s Office, Post Office, libraries, Motor Vehicle Department and Public Assistance Offices.
Voters on the Permanent Early Voting List will receive a 90-day notice and can update their registration information using the 90-day notice form.
Voters who receive an election notice for someone who no longer lives at that address are asked to return the notice to the Recorder’s Office.
John estimated that 10 percent of the mailings will be returned as undeliverable. By law, there will be a follow-up, and any voter whose notice is returned from the second mailing will be placed on the inactive rolls. This will allow the county to print fewer ballots and sample ballots, cutting costs for the 2018 primary and general elections.
