Threat to sue over voter rolls

Posted By on Tue, Sep 14, 2010 at 12:52 PM

A conservative lawyer has written letters threatening lawsuits again 16 states, including Arkansas, for failure to adequately purge voter rolls of ineligible voters.

His targets came from reports on states that showed no recent voter purges or a registered voter count higher than the state's estimated population over 18.

UPDATE: The secretary of state's office says the complaining lawyer is off-base in Arkansas. Said spokeswoman Sandra McGrew:

We have been in contact with Mr. Adams, who has requested information regarding the removal of ineligible and deceased voters from the state’s voter rolls. The statewide voter registration system does purge ineligible and deceased voters from the registration list. The system provides us with the capability to provide potential death and felon match information to county clerks, who review each record before removing a voter from the rolls. We are confident that our office is complying with NVRA and we are in the process of providing numbers to Mr. Adams reflecting that.
