Voter Rolls Purged

Posted:

State elections officials removed about 52,000 inactive voters from Louisiana's voter rolls after November's presidential election.  State Elections Commissioner Angie Rogers says election laws require the purge of voter registration rolls once every two years or so, to remove the names of people who have not voted in the past two federal elections or any state or local race during that time period.  Rogers say the individuals have had notices sent to the address listed on voter rolls as part of a canvass process prior to the cancellation.  Voter cancellations totaled 52,308. Rogers says there were more women voters removed from the voter list than men and there were fewer Republicans than Democrats or other party registrants canceled.
