During the week of September 23, 2013, you will receive a notice of entry on the list of electors. Read it carefully as it contains the names of electors entered on the list at your address, as well as the location of the board of revisors.

If you do not receive a notice of entry or if corrections are required, you will have to report to the board of revisors.
