Statute

(1) No later than the fortieth day preceding the date of a scheduled local government election, the designated election official shall order the registration records from the county clerk and recorder. The designated election official shall order either:

(a) An initial list of the registered electors as of the thirtieth day prior to the election, with a supplemental list to be provided on the twentieth day; or

(b) A complete list of registered electors as of the sixth day prior to the election.

(2) The county clerk and recorder shall certify and make available to the designated election official a complete copy of the list of the registered electors of the local government that has territorial boundaries located within the county and is involved in the election. If a supplemental list is provided pursuant to paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of this section, the county clerk and recorder shall certify and make available to the designated election official the supplemental list of eligible electors who became eligible since the earlier list was certified. These lists substitute for the original registration record.

(3) The registration list that is certified thirty days before the election pursuant to paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of this section must contain the names and addresses of all registered electors residing within the local government at the close of business on the fortieth day preceding the election. The supplemental registration list for each local government that is certified no later than twenty days before the election must contain the names and addresses of all eligible electors residing within the local government at the close of business on the twenty-second day prior to the election. If a supplemental list is provided, it must contain the names and addresses of all eligible electors who became eligible during the period since the initial registration list was certified through the close of business on the twenty-second day preceding the election.

(4) Costs for the lists required to be obtained under this section must be assessed by the county clerk and recorder and paid by the local government holding the election. The fee for furnishing the lists shall be no less than twenty-five dollars for the entire list or no more than one cent for each name contained on the registration list, whichever is greater.

(5) The designated election official may cancel an order for the list if the election is canceled pursuant to section 1-13.5-513 and the county clerk and recorder has not already prepared the list.
