§ 820-2-6-.04. Voter Eligibility Verification
In the event an individual's name does not appear on the list of eligible voters for the precinct, the provisional ballot officer shall in the presence of that individual use reasonable efforts to contact the county board of registrars and/or members of the appointing board to determine whether the individual is eligible to vote in that precinct. In a municipal election, the provisional ballot officer shall first contact the city clerk to determine whether the individual is eligible to vote in that precinct. The individual may request voting assistance from another person and such person shall be allowed to accompany and assist the individual during the process of provisional voting. If the provisional ballot officer verifies the individual's registration and/or eligibility to vote in that precinct, the provisional ballot officer shall write the source of verification in the designated area of a voter reidentification form which shall be completed by the individual or by the person providing voting assistance to the individual. Then the individual shall be directed to the appropriate poll worker so that he or she can vote a regular ballot. The provisional ballot officer will give the poll worker the completed reidentification form so that the form will be maintained with other election materials as prescribed by state and federal law.(New Rule: Filed May 27, 2004; effective July 1, 2004. Amended: Filed May 20, 2010; effective June 24, 2010.)
