SECTION 17-9.1-6


§ 17-9.1-6 Form of registration cards – Confidentiality of place of registration.

(a) Registration forms shall consist of the number of sets of cards and of the size and color that shall be determined by the state board of elections, one of which forms shall be designated as the original and any others as duplicates. The forms shall be ruled with appropriate spaces and headings to indicate the registrant's name, residence address, mailing address if different from residence address, date of birth, and registrant's signature and date of affixation of signature, and may include any other information, certifications, and declarations, including those made under the penalty of perjury, that may be required by the state board in order to administer a single and unified system of voter registration in accordance with applicable state and federal laws which shall enable duly registered voters to vote in all elections in their respective voting districts, including elections for federal officers.

(b) Notwithstanding that registration forms are public records, nothing contained in the registration forms, nor any identifying characteristics of the forms such as size or color, shall indicate the particular office of the division of motor vehicles at which the voter was registered, nor shall there be any indication that the voter was registered at any other state, federal, or private agency. Nothing contained in this section shall restrict the state board of elections from maintaining confidential records showing the actual place of registration of all voters.
