“Ensuring Georgia’s voter rolls are updated is essential to making sure the integrity of our elections,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger stated in a assertion.
“That’s the reason I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in courtroom in 2019 to take away practically 300,000 out of date voter information earlier than the November election, and can accomplish that once more this yr,” he added. “Backside line, there isn’t a professional motive to maintain ineligible voters on the rolls.”
The 101,789 out of date voter information which might be set to be yanked are comprised of about 67,000 individuals who have modified their addresses, 34,000 whose election mail was “returned to sender” about 275 Georgians who had “no-contact with elections officers” for 5 years or extra, in line with the secretary of state.
