PULASKI COUNTY CLERK TERRI HOLLINGSWORTH TO ASK 68,425 VOTERS TO UPDATE THEIR VOTER REGISTRATION
Per the National Voter Registration Act registered voters will receive mailing regarding their voting status, action required
LITTLE ROCK — Terri Hollingsworth, the Pulaski County Circuit and County Clerk and Voter Registrar announced that her office, in compliance with the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, has mailed notifications to 68,425 registered voters in the county requesting confirmation of their current residential address. This number includes 40,145 confirmation cards and 28,280 cancellation cards.
“If you did not vote in the special election, primary, general or runoff elections in 2020, and for any other elections including school board, state, county, or city in 2018 and 2019 — you should receive a notice from my office. This is not junk mail, so please do not throw it away.
In preparation for the 2022 mid-term elections, it is important that you update your voter registration with our office. Just complete the detachable postcard and mail it or call our office to update your information. It is that simple. If you have received a notice from us, per the National Voter Registration Act, please respond by contacting us,” said Terri Hollingsworth.
Confirmation cards were sent to voters verifying if their address is still current, or the change of address that was sent to us through the US Postal Service is accurate. Cancelation cards were sent to those who haven’t responded to past NVRA notifications in 2017 and 2019.
A white postcard is built into the mailer, which enables the voter to mail back their response to the Voter Registration Office. The voter also has the option to call the office at 501-340-8336 to update their information.
The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993 set up national guidelines and requirements for allowing voters to be given the opportunity to register to vote or change their voter registration information when seeking or receiving services such as a driver’s license or public assistance.
Under the law (Amend 51, §10, (d)), the Pulaski County Clerk’s Voter Registration Office is to conduct bi-annual confirmation mailings to those individuals with whom we didn’t have contact during the past two-year election cycle, (2019-2020). These individuals didn’t vote nor update their registration information during the cycle. The mailing asks the voter to either confirm their address or update their registration information.
In 2019, a total number of 56,697 cards were sent out with 20,572 return responses.
As of August 24, 2021, there were 235,482 registered voters in Pulaski County.
The Pulaski County Clerk’s office uses a third-party vendor based in Little Rock to handle the printing and mailing.
