LANSING CITY CLERK’S OFFICE SELECTED TO PILOT NEW STATE OF MICHIGAN QVF
Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope is excited for what the future holds as the clerk’s office is one of a few jurisdictions in the state of Michigan that will pilot the new statewide Qualified Voter File (QVF) Refresh.
The Michigan Bureau of Elections plans to roll out QVF in the coming months. Swope is happy to work in cooperation with the Bureau of Elections to give feedback on the new and improved system.
“I am happy to partner with the Bureau of Elections in testing a new system that should assist municipal clerks across Michigan in running smoother elections,” said City Clerk Chris Swope. “By investing time and training now, the City of Lansing will be ahead of the curve in preparations for projected big elections in August and November 2018.”
This is the first rewrite of the QVF since 1998. Other jurisdictions piloting the program include the city of Ann Arbor, the city of Novi, Osceola Township, the city of Grand Rapids, Washtenaw County and Genesee County.
QVF Refresh is a web-based application designed and developed to help increase the efficiency of voter registration. It will also assist in maintaining voter records and other election-related tasks. The system provides multilevel authentication and has enhanced security standards to protect valuable voter records.
