Annual Audit Statewide Voter Registration System
The bill requires the state auditor to conduct an annual audit of the statewide voter registration system. The audit must include at least 20% of the active registered electors in each county, unduplicated over 5 consecutive years. The auditor is required to determine whether the data in the statewide voter registration list can be validated against other official records including death records, property records, and tax records. The secretary of state must reimburse the state for the full cost of the audit from the department of state cash fund.
