The Registrars of Voters have begun the annual canvass of voters as required by Conn. General State Statute section 9-32.
The Federal Voter Registration Act of 1993, which became effective in January 1995, mandates that the canvass take place between January 1 and May 1 of every year.
The purpose of the canvass is to verify the legal residence of registered voters and to keep the voter registry list current and accurate.
Some voters may receive a letter from the Registrar’s office requesting updated information or confirming the information already on file. Everyone who receives a letter is urged to respond.
Voters who fail to respond may have their voting status changed to “inactive”. They will be required to re-register in order to vote in upcoming Elections.
Anyone with questions may call the registrar’s office at 203.262.0644 or email email@example.com.
Voters may visit the town’s website at www.southbury-ct.org for more voting information.
