Judge allows 309,000 voters to be purged from Georgia rolls

This week, a federal judge allowed the secretary of state’s office to
remove about 4 percent of registered voters from the rolls, a move
officials said was aimed at those who have recently died or left
Georgia. But there were also more than 120,000 people included in that
cull simply because they hadn’t voted since 2012 or responded to
mailings from the state, according to a lawsuit filed to halt the purge.
