136. Where the decision of the board of revisors concerning an application for entry or striking off entails entering or striking off a name for which no application has been made, the board of its own initiative may enter the name or strike it off.
The board may also, of its own initiative, enter or strike off a name or make a correction if, after verifying the information provided to its members by the returning officer under section 121, it decides that a change must be made to the list. Where the board decides that such a change is not warranted, it shall specify that its verification confirmed the accuracy of the information or that it was unable to confirm or refute the accuracy of the information.
Where a correction is made, a name is entered on or struck off a part of the list that is not within the competence of the board, the board shall give notice of its decision to the returning officer who shall transmit the notice to the competent board.
