Haverhill fears 16,000 voters on 'inactive list' will slow balloting

Residents who didn't return census, vote recently asked to check status


The deadline to get put back on the active voting list in time for the presidential election is Oct. 17, which is also the last day to register to vote.

“Anyone on the inactive list can still vote,” Toomey stressed. “No one will be turned away. But they will have to show ID and fill out the form, which slows everything down. We want voting to be as fast and smooth as possible, so we are asking people who aren’t sure to verify their voting status ahead of time.”

The clerk’ office in City Hall, 4 Summer St., will remain open to 8 p.m. on Oct. 17.
