Nearly 87,000 inactive voters to receive notices

June 2, 2011

Inactive voters soon will get another reminder to reactivate their status -- and a warning that if they do not do so by Oct. 3, they will not be able to vote in the Nov. 1 election.

During the last week of June, the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will mail 86,943 information cards to registered voters who have fallen into the “inactive” category by failing to vote in last November’s General Election, Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams told county commissioners Thursday.

The card will contain instructions on how to update voter records, either online, in person at one of three offices, or by returning the card in the mail. It also will have names and phone numbers of national, state and local officials representing that specific voter.

The mailing will cost about $26,000.

The county is required by state statute to do the mailing and also mailed a similar card in January to 93,197 voters who did not vote last November.

Ballots for the November election will be mailed only to active registered voters.
