suspense list
 n.— «Texas has over 12.6 million voters as of January 2008. 1.8 million of that total are on what is known as a “suspense list.” The suspense list is generated when registrars mail out a certificate every two years, which is returned if the address is invalid. Voters on the suspense list may vote at their old polling place if they live in the same county, and will be removed after two federal elections in which they are on the suspense list.» —“March 4 Snapshot: Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont” VoteTrustUSA Mar. 1, 2008.
