More than 100,000 names will be removed from Georgia's voter registration rolls in an attempt to keep the state's voter files "up to date," Georgia's secretary of state announced Friday.

Republicans can only win elections in which they can select the voters.

And many times, not even then.

"34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender" That trick been used to disenfranchise people for ages.

"276 that had no-contact with elections officials for at least five years" Imagine if you lost your right to buy a gun if you didn't use it for five years. LOL!

If I was removed, I'd go right away to the nearest registration area (usually the DMV)
and re-register...

For some (all?) of those who have been targeted for removal, they may not know of the removal until they try to vote. That is part of the tactic.

Exactly. How would you know if you were removed?

It's not like they tell you.

The whole reason for removal is based on your address, which they've already invalidated. (Except for those 276 no-contact folks.)

Once again proving, that Republicans already know that the only way for them to win, is to CHEAT... What's that say about a political party or their message?

Compliance with federal law is cheating? D**n, I never cease to be amazed at the crap you learn on the DR.

BTW, the National Voter Registration Act was passed by the 103rd Congress. Both houses held a Democratic majority. The bill was signed by President Clinton. It provides in pertinent part,

Section 8 of the Act sets out requirements for how States maintain voter registration lists for federal elections. The Act deems as timely those valid voter registration applications by eligible applicants submitted to designated state and local officials, or postmarked if submitted by mail, at least 30 days before a federal election. The Act also requires the notification of all applicants of whether their voter registration applications were accepted or rejected.

The Act requires States to keep voter registration lists accurate and current, such as identifying persons who have become ineligible due to having died or moved outside the jurisdiction. At the same time, the Act requires list maintenance programs to incorporate specific safeguards, e.g., they must be uniform, non-discriminatory, in compliance with the Voting Rights Act, and not be undertaken within 90 days of a federal election.

The removal of voters for non-voting or for having moved can only be done after meeting the requirements set out in the Act. Voters can be removed from registration lists when they have been convicted of a disqualifying crime or adjudged mentally incapacitated, where such removals are allowed by state law. The NVRA also provides additional safeguards under which registered voters would be able to vote notwithstanding a change in address in certain circumstances, such as when a voter has move within a district or a precinct will retain the right to vote even if they have not re-registered at their new address.

There needs to be a federal law that guarantees the same access to vote across all states. Identical access. Not having to wait in line for 12 hours because you arbitrarily shuttered hundreds of polling stations.

I'll wager that at least 76 GOP voters were removed from the voter rolls in Georgia...

The Texas power grid also complies with applicable Federal and State Regulations.

If the grid is in compliance and it's garbage then the problem is the regulations not cheating.

Compliance with the NVRA is not cheating. That was my point in response to another ignorantly asserting it is.

When the regulations are written by cheaters, it turns out the problem actually is cheating, Et_Al.

I have a problem with that narrative, list maintenance suppresses votes. It seems that minority voter turnout is doing well. www.google.com

It's certainly vastly better than pre-Voting Rights Act.

If "votes are being suppressed" by voter list maintenance, how is it that turnout is increasing?

Et_Al is here to tell us the problem with slavery isn't slavery, it's that the regulations allow slavery.

Slavery wasn't cheating. It was legal.

That's some pretty sloppy rhetoric. It assumes the only factor driving voter turnout is voter list maintenance.

What is the point of list maintenance, other than to suppress fraudulent votes?

It's understandable that voter roles need to be maintained and managed.

But regardless of this requirement anytime you are making it harder to vote you are doing it wrong. Sending a notice into oblivion and doing the bare minimums is not enough and shows the true intentions of the laws. Stop putting the burden on the voter. Once a person shows once that they are citizens they should never have to prove it ever again. We have the technology to do make that work because it's has already been done.

No one should inconvenienced at the ballot box by the paranoid delusions of Republicans who are apparently afraid of the outcome of truly free and fair elections of ALL eligible citizens.

Yeah, because leftists like you are in the faces of minorities each day reminding them that they aren't smart enough to get an ID to vote. You are the problem. Keep up your dumb ----. Every minority I know are absolutely capable of obtaining an ID that proves their existence and gives them the right to vote and move around freely. Keep pedaling the ---- based idea that these people cant think for themselves, moron.

No one claimed they weren't smart enough, except you.

Please explain why 25% of voting age blacks have no photo ID, compared to 8% of whites.

No, that's not the reason. And you're smart enough to know the real ones.

Are you willing to admit them, or will you continue to be the only person suggesting it's a lack of intelligence?

Pretty deep in the Trumptilian doo doo aren't you?

Why don't you explain it? And maybe learn something in the process. They say that teaching something is the best way to learn about that something.

No one here is going to be able to "explain" or teach anything to you. You already know it all.

And the fact that someone has to explain systemic racism to you and how it has disadvantaged blacks and persons of color in this country just shows the level of your ignorance. And the need for laws to protect voting from the likes of you.

Post 30 was for bellringer ...in case there is any confusion.

Ring my bell baby. Go ahead. Tell me blacks haven't been disadvantaged in this country don't need voting rights protections because they already have equal access. Support the Big Lies. It's ez. No heavy lifting required!

You can lie to yourself because you don't think for yourself.

But you can't lie to the rest of us.
