States Refuse to Hand Over Voter Data Regularly Used by Campaigns
JULY 05, 2017
In April, Judicial Watch sent letters to 11 states threatening to sue them for failing to maintain their rolls as required by the National Voter Registration Act (the “Motor Voter Act”) and the Help America Vote Act. In the letters, Judicial Watch cited as “strong circumstantial evidence” that the number of voters on the roll in some counties in these states had more people on it than there are voting-age citizens living in those counties.
The 11 states that got a letter are: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Tennessee. They were given 90 days to fix the problem before Judicial Watch said it would file the suits.
