More Addressing Tips for Election Mailers

To help you with the processing of your mail, consider including the following information on your mail in addition to the voter name and address:

However, if you include this type of information on your Election Mail, it should be printed so it is not in the optical character read area used by Postal Service processing equipment to read the delivery address. If voter information must appear in the delivery address block area (i.e., address labels are used for both the voter information and the delivery address), then the voter information line must appear above the recipient line of the delivery address.
