The left will fight to the bitter end to keep voter rolls open even if people have died or moved. One little detail on not purging. The Dems have conducted and defended voter registration drives and promoted motor voting in state offices at every turn. Some of their efforts register voters, many of whom never vote or don't even live where they're registered. They will lose Democrat registered voters in they allow purging. One very subtle result of this is that it appears that there are more registered Democrats than other parties in the state and pollsters "weight" their polling accordingly. This skews the polling results toward the Democrats. This is one reason I really don't like polls that are weighted this way.

TROLLING THREAD!!!!! THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF MEANINGFUL VOTER FRAUD.
But see, that's a fact.

People who live in Alternative Factland are immune to facts. In Alternative Factland, voter fraud is a problem and it's the Democrats' fault and it just is, and therefore, it just is. Dig?

Yup. I dig. And in addition to what you said, they dig up ELECTION FRAUD that results from their own attempts to cheat and present it as evidence of "voter fraud".

I welcome you to document any actual Democrat objection to this specific act of purging those who have died or moved out of the affected region.
We both know you CANNOT do that.

The existing law already has mechanisms to purge dead voters / voters who have moved out of the region.
We simply need the affected agencies to follow through on these specific actions.

Again, I welcome you to document the actual percentages involved regarding these claims of registering illegal / fraudulent voting.
The studies document that fraudulent voting is actually incredibly rare.

"it appears" ???

I suspect what your reply is going to be...
And if you're going to complain about "dead / moved" voters, then you need to document percentages in order to justify your claims.
Cause the reality is that neither Democrat nor Republican have any "advantage" on being dead / not purged.

Sorry, there isn't voter fraud, this is just dishonest, right wing scum trying to make excuses from preventing people from voting, since they know they can't win without cheating

Regarding purging people from voter rolls WHO ARE ACTUALLY DOCUMENTED AS DEAD, I don't think there is any complaint.
The problem is that the GOP typically talks about "purging voter rolls", AND VALID DEMOCRAT VOTERS GET PURGED.

For example:
State officials claimed that people removed from the voter rolls for inactivity had likely died or moved away. But an APM Reports investigation found tens of thousands who hadn't — and still wanted to vote.​
....​
On a single day in late July 2017, Kemp's office had removed from the rolls 560,000 Georgians who had been flagged because they'd skipped one too many elections. Abrams would later call the purge the "use-it-or-lose-it scheme." An APM Reports investigation last year estimated 107,000 of the people purged under the policy would otherwise have been eligible to vote last year, just like Baiye.​
....​
But the 2017 purge likely gave an advantage to Kemp and other Republican candidates, an analysis of election results and state voter files shows. Purged voters were more likely to live in Democratic precincts, an APM Reports analysis found. Specifically, the data shows that, of the purged registrations that could be matched up to precincts, nearly 47 percent were from precincts that Abrams carried by more than 10 percentage points last November. (Those precincts made up just about 39 percent of overall votes.) Meanwhile, voters in strong Kemp precincts were under-represented on the purge list. Registrations from those heavily Republican precincts accounted for more than 43 percent of the purges. Such precincts made up over 51 percent of votes.​

THIS should be considered fraud committed by a Repub politician seeking to deny Dem votes!


Also
Ten percent or more of registered voters in dozens of communities could be removed from the voter rolls if a lawsuit against the state succeeds.​
Some of the highest dropoff would occur in Wisconsin’s two largest cities and areas with college campuses — the epicenters for Democratic support. But the effect would also ripple through rural areas that backed President Donald Trump in 2016, a review of state data by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel shows.​
In all, tens of thousands of voters could come off the rolls.​

don't get too excited, OP

Wisco has same-day registration, so anyone who was purged, and shouldn't have been can re-register up to and even on election day. So if they go to the polls to vote and find out they've been purged, they can register and still vote that day, which is a good thing

however, it's still an attempt at voter suppression, and will cause some voters to lose their right and privilege to vote, which is purely un-American

we need a system that automatically registers every US citizen to vote on their 18th birthday, and transfers upon moving, and purges upon death. what would be your specific problem with that? and don't say cost, because all this purging you're so gung-ho about costs money too.

some good graphics here, about the ease of voting in each state


what would be a valid argument against what Oregon and Colorado do?
