447 Bulloch County voters lose their voter registration status Sunday after Georgia’s Secretary of State announced the removal of over 100,000 “obsolete and outdated” voter files from rolls.
“Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” said Brad Raffensperger, secretary of the state of Georgia. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year.”
Individuals are put on the list if they haven’t participated in an election in 5+ years or in two general elections, making voter registration a use-it-or-lose-it deal. This is not the first time voters have been purged for not voting.
The 101,789 obsolete voter files that will be removed include 67,286 voter files associated with a National Change of Address form submitted to the U.S. Postal Service; 34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender; and 276 that had no-contact with elections officials for at least five years.
Bulloch voters set to be purged from voter lists were sent a notice by mail that they had 40 days to verify their registration before being removed. You can check your voter registration status here.
