212. Before striking off or refusing to enter a person’s name, the board of revisors must convene the person by way of a written notice stating the grounds for the decision it intends to make, except where the person is present, in a case described in the second paragraph of section 192, where the application to have a name struck off the list is filed under section 207 by an elector domiciled at the address for which that name is entered or where the board is satisfied, on the basis of the evidence presented to it, that the person the striking off of whose name is applied for is under curatorship or is dead.
The notice must be of at least one clear day and shall be served by the revising officers on the person concerned or, if it cannot be served on him, shall be left at the address entered on the list of electors or at any other place where the board of revisors or the revising officers have reason to believe the person may be found.
A certificate of the service shall be drawn up by the revising officers in the prescribed form and returned to the board of revisors.
