Skip to comments.Virginia Democrats fight purge of voter rolls ordered weeks before election
Posted on 10/14/2013 2:52:31 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Election officials across Virginia are grappling with how to follow through with a directive from the State Board of Elections to purge up to 57,000 registered voters from the state rolls a move that has prompted a lawsuit from the Democratic Party of Virginia and outright defiance by at least one registrar.
The state, working this year for the first time as part of a multistate program intended to validate voters, says it is required by law to conduct maintenance on voter lists and is not canceling voters but directing local registrars to review registrants carefully. The program provides information to election boards about voters who are registered in more than one state.
But the timing of the move weeks before the states gubernatorial election has raised eyebrows. The state Democratic Party filed a lawsuit this month and asked a federal court for an injunction. A high number of registered voters and a large turnout generally are considered to be advantages for Democrats.
A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 18 three days after the voter registration deadline passes in Virginia.
Local election officials in counties throughout the state have identified countless errors in the SBEs list of 57,000, the lawsuit says. It further argues that the purge is being enforced by Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, notwithstanding the direct conflict of interest that Cuccinelli has as the Republican gubernatorial candidate.

‘Rats can’t let one of the means to election fraud removed.
They are liars and cheats.
We should give them no ground.
At a minimum, there should be plenty of publicity about the consequences of unlawful voting.
IIRC some place put up billboards a few yrs back to deter offenders and they were sued?
Voter fraud of ANY kind = 5 YEARS in prison with NO TIME off for ‘good behavior’.
“Voter fraud of ANY kind = 5 YEARS in prison with NO TIME off for good behavior.”
Agreed. Voter fraud is taken too lightly, IMO.
How many (fraudulent) votes did Bozo win VA by in his last immaculation? Anyone still believe the results?
So shall they call it voter suppression, but yet at the same time ? now allowing Vets to visit their memorials is not government suppression ?
Awww, their precious fraud machine all gone.
The Democrats will defend the right of the dead to vote. It’s one of their most reliable voting blocs.
Same B.S. here in FL.
It’s always ‘tweak’ the system, NEVER fix the problem.
Kill motor-voter. PURGE the voting rolls and have everyone re-register (and re-do the same every 10 yrs. like the census). And do it RIGHT after the presidential election; they can never get their sh!t together to do it mere WEEKS BEFORE an election (talk about ass-backwards).
But, what else does one expect from GOV’T?
I see this over and over again- failure to purge rolls and objections to voter identification laws-and ask why any honest person would object to these? The answer is simple, allow these conditions to exist and voter fraud will remain an effective tool of manipulation and employment for lobbyists and thugs. It’s past time for the honest people of America to rise up and object and throw the bums out of Congress and the courts.
