Voter purges are a threat to our democracy. The right to vote should never be taken away regardless of who you are, where you live or how often you move.
State and local officials are responsible for maintaining voter registration lists. When officials do so unfairly, it results in eligible voters being stripped of their fundamental right to vote – known as voter purges.
All Voting is Local fights for fair rules so that voters who get on the rolls, stay on the rolls and that all eligible voters can cast a ballot that counts. Election officials should be more concerned with keeping eligible voters on the rolls than removing them. When they fail to do their job, our campaign works to reach voters where they are to alert them to check and update their registrations through such tactics as digital ads and text messages.
