Mailing, date and method.

The definitions set forth in this section apply throughout this chapter, unless the context clearly requires otherwise.
(1) "By mail" means delivery of a completed original voter registration application by mail to a county auditor or the office of the secretary of state.
(2) For voter registration applicants, "date of mailing" means the date of the postal cancellation on the voter registration application. This date will also be used as the date of application for the purpose of meeting the registration cutoff deadline. If the postal cancellation date is illegible then the date of receipt by the elections official is considered the date of application. If an application is received by a county auditor or the office of the secretary of state by the close of business on the fifth day after the cutoff date for voter registration and the postal cancellation date is illegible, the application will be considered to have arrived by the cutoff date for voter registration.
