Section 45-19-110.04

Methods of voter reidentification.

A voter may reidentify himself or herself in anyone of the following ways:

(1) He or she may reidentify himself or herself by appearing in person at the office of the board of registrars and answering such questions and submitting such proof as may reasonably be required by the board of registrars or one of its duly authorized employees to establish his or her identity and place of legal residence and that he or she has not become disqualified from voting in such county.

(2) He or she may reidentify himself or herself by filling in and mailing to the office of the board of registrars the completed answers to such questions as may reasonably be propounded and mailed to him or her in a written questionnaire by the board of registrars, or on a form which the board of registrars shall cause to be printed in all newspapers of general circulation published in the county. Such questionnaire may contain such questions as are reasonably necessary to establish the identity of the person signing such questionnaire, the place of his or her legal residence, and that he or she has not become disqualified from voting in such county. All answers to such questionnaires shall be signed by the elector in the presence of at least two witnesses who shall sign his or her answers as attesting witnesses.

(3) He or she may reidentify himself or herself at the general election of 1978 or at any election at which he or she votes during 1978, and any tenth year thereafter, by filling out and signing answers to the questionnaire prepared by the board of registrars in the presence of a clerk, manager, or returning officer at such election. Such clerk, manager, or returning officer shall sign the answers of such voter as an attesting witness. The returning officer shall transmit all such filled in and signed answers to questionnaires to such board of registrars.

(4) Any voter who has been purged from the list of qualified electors for failure to reidentify may reidentify himself or herself on any election day at the office of the board of registrars or judge of probate by appearing in person. He or she will be given a certificate to take to the polls in order to vote on that day.
