The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) requires that each state conduct a general program that makes a reasonable effort to remove the names of ineligible voters from the official lists of eligible voters. Voters identified are sent a Confirmation Notice and have four years or two federal elections to respond to the notice. Voters who fail to have any voter activity (in example: votes, signs a petition, etc.) or fails to respond to the Confirmation Mailing during that 4 year period are required to be removed from the eligible voter registration list.


Relative to this year’s removal process, voters identified for cancellation were mailed a Confirmation Notice on September 28, 2007. Any inactive voter records where the Confirmation Notice was not returned or the notice was returned undeliverable are now required to be cancelled. As required by law, The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections has scheduled the cancellation of 100,672 voter registration records on September 28, 2011 which is the 4 year anniversary of the 2007 mailing.   


How to be removed from the cancellation list:

Any voter who is scheduled for removal and wishes to remain eligible to vote can confirm their status with the Board of Elections.  Voters who are on the list who wish to update their registration status may call the Board of Elections at 216-443-3298 or complete a new Voter Registration Card and mail or deliver it to the Board of Elections at 2925 Euclid Avenue, in Cleveland.


Registration Cards are available at public libraries, Ohio License Bureau offices, most local municipal buildings, and the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections website:
