After the last day of local registration and before the fifth day before the next ensuing general election in each year, the board of elections shall cause to be published a complete list of names and residence addresses of the registered voters for each election district over which the board has jurisdiction. The names for each election district may be arranged according to street and number or alphabetically. Each list shall be prepared in such a manner as to indicate the registrants whose names did not appear on the list of registered voters last published pursuant to the provisions of this section and the registrants who are in inactive status. The board of elections, in its discretion, may publish the names of the registrants in inactive status as a separate list. In lieu of publishing such a registration list, such board of elections may publish a complete list of the names and residence addresses of all registered voters whose names do not appear in the annual enrollment lists published in such year by such board, in the same form as such enrollment lists, and a list of the registered voters whose names appear in such annual enrollment lists but who have been placed in inactive status or whose registrations have been cancelled since the publication of such annual enrollment lists. Lists for all election districts in a ward or assembly district may be bound together in one volume.


The board of elections shall cause a list to be published for each election district over which it has jurisdiction.


The board of elections shall prepare such number of copies of such lists as it determines will be sufficient to meet the demand for such lists and shall send at least one copy of each such list to the state board of elections, and shall keep at least five copies for public inspection at each main office or branch of the board. Other copies shall be sold at a charge not exceeding the cost of publication.
