98.081  Names removed from registration books; restrictions on reregistering; recordkeeping; restoration of erroneously or illegally removed names.--

(1)  Any person who requested that his or her name be removed from the registration books between the book-closing date of the first primary and the date of the second primary may not register in a different political party until after the date of the second primary election.

(2)  When the name of any elector is removed from the registration books pursuant to s. 98.065, s. 98.075, or s. 98.093, the elector's original registration form shall be filed alphabetically in the office of the supervisor. As alternatives, registrations removed from the registration books may be microfilmed and such microfilms substituted for the original registration forms; or, when voter registration information, including the voter's signature, is maintained digitally or on electronic, magnetic, or optic media, such stored information may be substituted for the original registration form. Such microfilms or stored information shall be retained in the custody of the supervisor. In the event the original registration forms are microfilmed or maintained digitally or on electronic or other media, such originals may be destroyed in accordance with the schedule approved by the Bureau of Archives and Records Management of the Division of Library and Information Services of the department.

(3)  When the name of any elector has been erroneously or illegally removed from the registration books, the name of the elector shall be restored by the supervisor upon satisfactory proof, even though the registration period for that election is closed.
