Cue the ACLU lawsuits in 5....4....3....
How many of them voted?????
Did they do this to clear the roles so we cannot check on that?
Intimidating and confusing voters with bureaucratic nonsense, Young said, is classic voter suppression.
But every state should wipe the rolls after every election. If you want to vote in the next election, just re-register. In person. Bring ID. You have a year to get it done.
Plus paper ballots.
Plus purple ink.
They have to have a ‘victim’ to start a suit, don’t they?
All they need to find is one.
But i can see where we could say ONLY his case applies and he can be reinstated. And each one has to file suit.
Then it is just easier to re-register.
Each of the 591,548 voters affected by the move had already been on the states inactive
registration list. That means they had not voted, updated their voter registration information,
filed a change of name or address, signed a petition or responded to attempts to confirm their
last known address for at least the past three years.
That is not the responsibility of the ACLU, except the ACLU wants to increase its income by filing these lawsuits.
No, cue the inevitable people who won't read even the short excerpts and embarrass themselves before all FReepdom...
Sean Young, the legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, which on Friday sued Fulton County...
None, that’s why they are being purged..............
The second paragraph of the OP answers your questions ...
That's an interesting point. There are people who registered to vote years ago, and quite simply never saw any point in it. I wonder how many of them know they have to do something to maintain their status and that they won't be informed of that.
Anecdotally, it's something we ran into at the precinct desk where I was a poll worker in November. A few older guys (gosh, I wonder who they were voting for) showed up to vote and were surprised they had been taken off the roles. They had to vote provisional, which means those votes would not have been evaluated and counted unless it was close enough to make a difference.
The ACLU sued because "some of the address confirmation notices went to voters who had moved within the same county." The ACLU says this is Intimidating and confusing voters with bureaucratic nonsense."
It is the citizen's responsibility to properly maintain their voter registration and that includes updating your registration when you move. The ACLU is essentially saying that voters are imbeciles and incapable of doing that simple civic task. That's much like their position against voter ID that essentially says minorities are incompetent, too lazy, or fundamentally incapable of getting a valid ID, even though that same ID is required for almost every task in everyday life. ACLU is demeaning to all voters and racist based on these actions.
Don’t be so sure it is winning. I have had my registration in CA canceled a few times. I am a white male. A couple of times I had to provide ID, yes ID to vote, and my ballot was held to be verified. None of the people who were voting who did not speak English were checked. The whole thing is a joke. The electoral college is the only thing preventing this from being a ridiculous joke.
People die, people move out of state, people commit felonies and lose the right to vote. This is overdue cleaning up, correcting, maintaining the records.
"Being declared 'inactive' would then start the clock ticking on the years-long process that culminates in being cut from registration rolls, although an 'inactive' voter in Georgia is still legally registered to vote and by law has full access to a ballot."
So "inactive" people can still vote. You are only denied the vote when you are cut from the rolls.
