If you haven’t voted in the past four years, you’ll likely be receiving a postcard in the mail from the Government Accountability Board. Approximately 240,000 Wisconsin registered voters will get the notices.
Board Director Kevin Kennedy says state law requires the agency to conduct the four-year voter record maintenance process. He wants voters to know that it’s “not a scam or identity theft scheme.”
If you wish to remain active in the Statewide Voter Registration System, Kennedy says you have one month to contact your municipal clerk simply by returning the postcard identified with the words “Notice of Suspension of Registration.” Voters who have changed their names or addresses should not return the card, but instead re-register under their new name or at their new address.
The purpose of the mailing is to help Wisconsin maintain accurate and quality voter data. Voters with questions should contact their local municipal clerk. Voters can also use the Wisconsin’s Voter Public Access website to check their registration status and voting history.
