Conn. Agencies Regs. § 9-35-1 - Notice of removal

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) The notice of removal issued pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stats. § 9-35 shall be in the form prescribed by the Secretary of the State and shall be in both the English and Spanish languages in affected municipalities; in nonaffected municipalities the notice of removal may be in the English language only. For purposes of this section, affected municipalities shall mean all municipalities in which 1% or more of their total population, but no less than 500 persons, as reflected on the latest known extrapolations from the Director of the Census, are Hispanic-Americans, including all persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.
(b) The registrars of voters shall send this notice of removal by first class mail to the last-known address of each elector whose name has been or will be removed from the registry list. The envelope in which the notice of removal is sent to electors shall be endorsed with the words: READ CAREFULLY. DO NOT LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE. In municipalities with a significant minority population, the registrars of voters shall request the United States Postal Service to forward all notices of removal and supply to the registrars of voters the address corrections of such forwarded notices of removal by endorsing the envelopes in which notices of removal are sent to electors with the endorsement "Forwarding and Address Correction Requested." Each municipality with a significant minority population shall provide its registrars of voters with funds sufficient to pay all postal costs in connection with forwarding notices of removal and address corrections received. For purposes of this section, municipalities with a significant minority population shall mean all municipalities in which 1% or more of their total population, but no less than 500 persons, as reflected on the latest known extrapolations from the Director of the Census, are minorities, and minority shall mean (1) Black Americans, including all persons having origins in any of the Black African racial groups not of Hispanic origin; (2) Hispanic Americans, including all persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race; (3) Asian Pacific Americans and Pacific Islanders; or (4) American Indians and persons having origins in any of the original peoples of North American and maintaining identifiable tribal affiliations through membership and participation or community identification.
(c) In any case in which the registrars of voters receive an address correction from the postal service which indicates an elector's address has changed within the municipality, the registrars of voters shall transfer the name of such elector on the registry list to the elector's new residence.
