Section 17-4-12

Records to show reason for striking elector from list; removal for failure to reidentify not permanent disqualification.

When the name of any elector is struck from the registration list, the records maintained by the board of registrars must show the reason for striking the elector from the list. No such person whose name is removed from the list of qualified electors for failure to reidentify shall cease permanently to be a qualified elector nor be subject to reregistration, but shall be subject only to the requirement that he or she reidentify as prescribed herein.
