Rhode Island Discovers 150,000 Voters Erroneously On Rolls


Recommended Posts


Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea has found 150,000 people wrongly placed on the state’s voter rolls, The Providence Journal reported Wednesday.
During the 2016 election, the state held a total of 781,770 registered voters. According to The Providence Journal, almost 65,000 names were cleared away since Gorbea became R.I. Sec of State in 2015. An additional 30,000 were classified as “inactive.”
Gorbea said she would not describe it as “fraud.” She added, “It’s really just inaccuracies.”
It is a difficult process to purge voters from the rolls as a result of Rhode Island law and federal law. The Providence Journal notes that if an official election mailer is sent back as undeliverable, the voter can be simply called inactive. But if the voter does not cast a ballot in the next two federal elections, that voter can be removed from the rolls.:snip:
