Watchdog group, NYC settle voter roll lawsuit
From Washington Examiner:
Judicial Watch moved to dismiss a federal lawsuit on Wednesday it filed against elections officials in New York and New York City after, according to the watchdog organization, the city removed more than 440,000 ineligible individuals from its voter rolls.

The law also calls for boards of elections to take reasonable steps to remove ineligible voters from their rolls, which includes people who have died or moved.
