(1) The designated election official shall keep a list of names of eligible electors
who have applied for absentee voters' ballots and of those permanent absentee voters
placed on the list pursuant to section 1-13.5-1003(2), with the date on which each application was made, the date on which the absentee
voter's ballot was sent, and the date on which each absentee voter's ballot was returned. If an absentee voter's ballot is not returned, or if it is rejected and not counted,
that fact must be noted on the list. The list is open to public inspection under proper regulations.
(2)(a) An eligible elector whose name appears on the list as a permanent absentee
voter must remain on the list and must be mailed an absentee voter's ballot for each
election conducted by the political subdivision for which the eligible elector has
requested permanent absentee voter status.
(b) An eligible elector must be deleted from the permanent absentee voter list if:
(I) The eligible elector notifies the designated election official that he or she
no longer wishes to vote by absentee voter's ballot;
(II) The absentee voter's ballot sent to the eligible elector is returned to the designated
election official as undeliverable;
(III) The eligible elector has been deemed “Inactive” pursuant to section 1-2-605; or
(IV) The person is no longer eligible to vote in the political subdivision.
(3) The designated election official shall keep a list of the names of eligible electors
applying for an absentee voter's ballot, the number appearing on the stub of the ballot
issued to such eligible elector, and the date the ballot is delivered or mailed. This information may be recorded on the registration record or registration list
before the registration book or list is delivered to the election judges. A separate list of the eligible electors who have received absentee voter's ballots
must be delivered to the election judges in the polling place designated for counting
absentee voter's ballots, or, if the designated election official elects to deliver
absentee voters' envelopes received from electors to the election judges of such polling
place, as provided by section 1-13.5-1006, a separate list of the eligible electors who have received absentee voter's ballots
must be delivered to the election judges of each such polling place.
