Whether you voted in the last General Election or not, the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder needs your help to keep our voter rolls clean.
County Clerk-Recorder Julie Rodewald says 69 percent of voters cast their ballots in the November 2010 election. But, that means that 48,000 registered voters did not head to the polls that day. The Clerk-Recorder's office says many of those who didn't vote may have moved out of the area without notifying officials about their change of address.
That means the Clerk-Recorder's Office needs your help. It will soon send out Residency Confirmation Cards to the thousands of voters who did not cast ballots in the last General Election. Here's what you need to do if you receive one:
- If the person named on the postcard is not living at that address, write "NOT AT THIS ADDRESS" on the front of the card. If you are aware of the person's new address, write it on the card. Then, place the card back in your mailbox.
- If the postcard is addressed to you and you still live at the address, just disregard the notice and you will remain registered to vote in San Luis Obispo County.
