GA to Purge Nearly 200,000 Voters; AL Legislature Ignores SCOTUS Redistricting Order

HeadlineJul 21, 2023

In Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced another 191,000 people would be purged from state election rolls, even though they are registered voters. The move targets voters who are deemed “inactive” because mailed election materials were not able to be delivered and voters who may not have officially signaled an address change. Kendra Cotton, head of the New Georgia Project Action Fund, said, “Georgia is well-known for its wide-ranging and creative attempts at voter suppression. Voting is a right. If someone chooses not to use it, that doesn’t mean they lose it.”

Meanwhile, in Alabama, lawmakers passed a new congressional map this week that still does not include a second majority-Black district as ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court last month.
