State of Wisconsin Mails Postcards to Inactive Voters | Wisconsin Elections Commission

Date:  June 9, 2017

MADISON, WI – The State of Wisconsin began mailing “Notice of Suspension” postcards this week to approximately 380,000 registered voters who have not voted in the past four years.

“This is an official postcard – not a scam,” said Michael Haas, Wisconsin’s chief elections official.  “State law requires inactive voters to be removed from the statewide voter list, which is just one of many steps we take to ensure the integrity of voting in Wisconsin.

”The Wisconsin Elections Commission is sending the postcards to voters who have not voted since the November 2012 presidential election.  The postcard asks recipients whether they want to remain active on the state’s voter list.  To remain active, voters have one month to mail a return postcard to their municipal clerk. Voters who do not respond will be marked as inactive on the list.  Voters will also be inactivated if the postcard is undeliverable by the Post Office.
