Georgia secretary of state announces he’ll remove over 100,000 ineligible voters from rolls

Amid lingering concerns over alleged fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) is taking action to prevent a potential repeat of similar allegations in the next major election cycle.

The top official in charge of Georgia’s elections announced Friday that his office intends to remove more than 100,000 “obsolete or outdated” voter files from the state’s registered voter rolls, the Washington Examiner reported.

The common-sense move — required every two years by state law — to remove ineligible voters from the system has nevertheless drawn fierce criticism from some who falsely characterized the effort as an illicit “purge” of legally registered and eligible voters.

The key to ensuring election “integrity”

According to a press release from Sec. Raffensperger’s office, a list of 101,789 names was published of registered Georgia voters who are believed to have moved out of state or been inactive for more than two election cycles, and are therefore now ineligible.

“Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Raffensperger said. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year. Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.”

The statement broke down the 101,789 “obsolete or outdated” voter files as including 67,286 files that matched change of address forms at the U.S. Postal Service, 34,277 files that had election mail returned to the sender, and 276 files in which no contact or voting activity had been made for the past five years.

Raffensperger also revealed that he’d already removed 18,486 files of voters who had died, as per information compiled by Georgia’s Office of Vital Records and the interstate partnership Electronic Registration Information Center.

Voters can challenge

Local media outlet WSB-TV reported that eligible voters who believe they’ve been erroneously included on that list have 40 days to take action to ensure they aren’t removed.

However, even if they are ultimately removed from the voter rolls, they can simply re-register and become eligible again in a matter of moments.

Of the published list, Raffensperger told the outlet: “These people don’t live in Georgia anymore. Then you have 18,000 people who passed. So they are not going to be voting anymore. You need to have accurate voter rolls and proper list maintenance. It also helps your county election directors.”

Activists intend to fight back

As noted, the announcement was sharply criticized and characterized as an illegal “purge” of otherwise eligible voters by some voting rights advocates, such as Gerald Griggs of the Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), who had unsuccessfully fought a similar cleaning of the voter rolls in 2019 that had removed roughly 300,000 ineligible voters.

“We already have lawyers on standby, I am on standby, just in case we have to file litigation,” Griggs told WSB-TV. “So we are going to be watching this and we will respond if we believe voters have been disenfranchised.”

  8. YES! YES! YES!
    What will the TALKING HEADS like Lemon, Scarborough
    and the rest of the Fat=Mouthed Media say now?????
    THEY CALLED IT A GREAT LIE and ridiculed President Trump!
    RIGHT AGAIN!!!!!!
    Iust like the origins of the Wuhan Virus and Dr. Fauci!!!!

  9. Why do all the criminals accuse the people who are trying to make voter information up-to-date? I’ll tell you why! People who have criminal minds, think everyone thinks the way they do, so they accuse the “righteous” to take the focus off if THEIR crimes, inconsistencies, and lies. They have no semblance of decency, understanding, or respect for others… but GUARANTEED, they will soon find out. Repent! Before it’s too late, all who; confuse, accuse, & abuse your fellow man. Satan gives you some tasty appetizers, before you have dinner with him for ETERNITY! Time to get off the fence and “choose” who you’ll SERVE… after you get fed.

  10. Hopefully, the list includes all of those out of state voters that Stacey Abrams illegally added before the special runoff election for Georgia senators. Talk about cheating, those two senators were elected so that the dems have control of both the House and Senate. They are even talking about packing the Supreme Court so that they have control of it again, instead of the 5 to 4 advantage the conservatives have now.

  11. Our justice system doesn’t care. The governor of Georgia doesn’t care. People better demand this piece of trash be fired. He’s covering his tracks. He knows that people from out of state voted. Stacy needs arrested for treason. DOJ do your job. I know your reading my post. Nazi brown shirt.

  12. If a person can’t be honest with themselves, it is impossible for them to be honest with anyone else. People are as sick as their secrets, and darkness hates any light to shine on their black hearts 🖤. “If the light you think you have, is really darkness, how great is that darkness”.

  13. ★My last month paycheck was for 1500 dollars…All i did was simple online work from comfort at home for 3-4 hours/day that I got from this agency I discovered over the internet and they paid me for it 95 bucks every hour.

  14. He did do it, but he was not as thorough as he should have been. What is not mentioned here is this–> Were any votes submitted in the names of these people during the 2020 election? If there were, how many were there? Now, I know the answer to those 2 questions would start a firestorm around the country, but frankly, I would like to know them. I am certain that other states need this same level of house-cleaning to help ensure fair elections are held.

  15. There was fraud, fraud, & more fraud committed in the 2020 election and President
    Trump who is our legitimate President got cheated, how ignorant can people be, everyone
    Knows it, it is a matter of righting the wrong and putting Donald J Trump back in office who is the TRUE President!! Do the legislators have the guts to do that is the BIG question!!!

  16. Go ahead Georgia elect one more entitled candidate. She thinks she should be governor or she was entitled to be governor. Stacy I maintain that you should keep your job on the pancake box it is more you,seen but silent.

  17. Someone should ask LA county in Ca. why they refuse to purge their voter rolls of the 2.2 million illegal voter registrations! They use them every election to stay in office, that’s why!

  18. no, they don’t…obviously. I posted a couple of times that I saw late on election night that Trump was up 120,000+ in Pennsylvania. and suddenly they started to SUBTRACT votes for him. WTF? Did anyone else see this? POS left wingers that “worked” at the poles were so blatant. I can’t believe this. GOOGLE re CAPTUR just cancelled this out
