Voter List Processor Help

The voter list processor simply takes a voter list in the somewhat standardized Michigan format and combines all the voters in the same household to one record. This typically reduces the size of a mailing by about 30%. In presorted mail, on a 10,000 piece mailing, that is a savings of 3,000 pieces. Since the cost of postage is about 18 cents a piece and even an inexpensive piece tri-fold self-mailer will cost a least 5 cents, the savings on a 10,000 piece mailing will be about $690.

If you do 3 mailings that size, your campaign will save over $2000. If you think this is useful, please consider making a contribution of any size so that we can continue offering this service. Make checks payable to and mail to:

Michigan has standardized voter registration records. The names in the list to the right are the field names usually found in Michigan voter records.

The voter list processor works in 3 steps.

Upload File

Upload a CSV file from your computer to the web page. The first line of your CSV file be a header line, preferably with the standard column headings. The program will look for specific column names and then present you with its best guess as to where the various fields are (such as first name, last name, etc.). It then presents you with the information it has determined from reading your file.

Maximum file size is 10 Meg. If you have large files, it is best to ZIP them so you can save upload time.

Field Identification

Now you review if the automatic field identification was accurate. You can change any of the field specifications at this point.

You also specify here more details about processing the file. If you want the file to be all uppercase, then select that. If you want the file to be mixed case, select that. If you only want specific precincts from the list, then enter a comma separated list of the precincts you want.

Finally, specify your email address. When processing is complete, the resulting file will be emailed to you.

Uniquify

In the last step of the program, the list is actually processed and emailed to the specified address. Statistics are displayed on the screen so you know exactly what kind of savings you have.
