Commission staff prepared a special ERIC supplemental poll list report in WisVote for each municipality. This report contains a list of all the voters who received an ERIC postcard and were deactivated and have not re-registered or changed jurisdictions since the postcards were sent.

If a voter appears at the polling place and is not on the poll book, but believes they should be, election inspectors will need to reference this special supplemental ERIC poll list report. If the voter appears on that report, the voter should be allowed to vote at the address appearing on the report without re-registering.

If the voter states an address that is different than the address listed on the supplemental ERIC poll list report, the voter must re-register. If the voter does not appear on the report, they may have been removed for a reason other than ERIC. These voters should re-register and clerks should contact WEC staff to identify why this voter was not listed on either the poll list or the supplemental ERIC poll list report.

Commission staff prepared two training documents to assist in the creation and use of this ERIC supplemental poll list report:

  • The first training document covers how to generate and print the poll list report, participation for ERIC voters, and issue/track absentee ballots for ERIC voters.
  • The second training document includes instructions for how and when poll workers should use the ERIC supplemental poll list report on Election Day.
