All undeliverable mail is processed in accordance with the following: National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) Arizona Revised Statutes §16-166(A) Official Election Mail is not forwardable. When Voter Registration receives a piece of undeliverable mail, we will send an additional notice to the voter by forwardable mail requesting they update their residential address. The voter has 35 days to respond to the notice, if no response, their voter account is moved to an inactive status. Voters in an inactive status are still registered to vote but, to cast a ballot they must first update their residential address. If the voter stays in an inactive status through two Federal Election cycles, their account is moved to canceled. Each address is verified using our GIS addressing system, verifying the address is zoned residential. It is common for voters of different last names to reside at the same address. When official election mail is received at a household where the addressee no longer resides, the mail should be returned to the USPS. Not all voters alert us or the USPS of an address change. Voters voluntarily remove themselves or make changes to their account.
