Wisconsin’s election managers are not going to purge the state’s voting rolls without an order from the state’s Supreme Court.
But they are going to reach out to missing voters more often. The Wisconsin Elections Commission yesterday voted to contact some of the 230-thousand voters who have not voted in years, but remain registered in the state. The plan is to send them a letter every 18 months or so, just to see if they have moved or changed their voter registration. State law requires missing voters to be dropped from the registration list, but the Commission is fighting that requirement in a challenge before the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
