Secretary Of State Purges Inactive Voter Registrations

Indiana’s secretary of state says more than 481,000 inactive voter registrations have been purged from the state’s voter rolls as part of a long-running effort ordered by lawmakers. Connie Lawson said Tuesday that 481,235 voter registration records have been removed from voter rolls since November in accordance with federal law. Those registrations were canceled if voters sent postcard alerts or did not update their records or did not vote in any election held in 2014, 2015 or 2016. Lawson says Indiana’s voter roll purge is continuing at both the state and county levels.
