1-8.3-106. Overseas voter’s registration address


In registering to vote, an overseas voter who is eligible to vote in this state shall use and shall be assigned to the voting precinct of the address of the last place of residence of the voter in this state, or, in the case of a voter described by section 1-8.3-102 (2) (d), the address of the last place of residence in this state of the parent or legal guardian of the voter. If that address is no longer a recognized residential address, the voter shall be assigned an address for voting purposes.

Source: L. 2011: Entire article added, (HB 11-1219), ch. 176, p. 667, § 1, effective May 13.


This section specifies the address of the last place of residence as the address to be used as the voter registration address, and instructs election officials to assign an administratively convenient address to a voter who has no last place of residence in the state. When election officials must assign a voter a non-standard address, where possible they should place the voter in the same precinct or district as the last place of residence, were it still a recognized residential address.
