The [National Voter Registration} Act also requires States to conduct a general voter registration list maintenance program that makes a reasonable effort to remove ineligible persons from the voter rolls by reason of the person's death, or a change in the residence of the registrant outside of the jurisdiction, in accordance with procedures set forth in the NVRA. The list maintenance program must be uniform, nondiscriminatory and in compliance with the Voting Rights Act. (emphasis added) Scroll to Section 8, paragraphs 26-40.

Seems Georgia's timelines are more generous than the floor set by the NVRA.
