What does it mean to be an "inactive" voter?

 Each year the City of Newton sends an Annual City Census form to all residential households. Registered voters who do not respond before June 1st, of each year, will become inactive. It is important to note this does not mean you have been deleted.

**If your status is "inactive" when you arrive at your polling location to vote a Valid ID is required.**

 

How do I stay an "active" voter? 

  • Reply to your Annual City Census or Confirmation Mailing Card prior to the voter registration deadline.
  • Voting in any elections
  • Signing any Nomination or Petition Papers

 

Is "inactive" the same as "deleted"?

No.

Having an "inactive" status does not mean you have be deleted from the voting list.
