214. Before entering the name of an elector on the list of electors, the board of revisors must ascertain that the elector’s name is not already entered thereon.
If the name is already entered, the board of revisors shall first strike it off, in which case it is not necessary to send the notice provided for in section 212.
In the case of an application made under section 3, the board of revisors shall indicate that a name is entered and, where applicable, struck off only for the current election.

214. The board of revisors and every revisor duly authorized by it may make an inquiry to ensure that a person whose name is already entered on the list of electors, or who applies for its entry thereon, is entitled to have it so entered. The person may be assisted by an advocate.
For the purposes of the inquiry, the board of revisors may summon witnesses.
The assistants to the board shall serve the summons on the person concerned or, if they cannot do so, they may leave it at his domicile.
A minute of the service shall be drawn up by the assistants in the prescribed form and reported to the board of revisors.
