New York Sued for Failing to Remove Ineligible Voters from Voter Rolls
Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against New York election officials, accusing them of failing to remove ineligible voters from the state’s voter rolls.
The watchdog group filed the lawsuit on Wednesday after they claimed that New York election officials have violated the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) by removing just 22 individuals from New York City’s voter rolls in the last six years.
