Under Threat Of Lawsuit, Allegheny Co. Purging 69,000 Inactive Voters From Rolls

From CBS Pittsburgh:


PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – No one’s alleging that dead people are voting in Allegheny County, but at the Board of Elections, there are tens of thousands of registrations for voters who are deceased, moved away or haven’t voted in several years that need to be culled from the rolls.

“I would concede that we are behind in culling our rolls. We are in the process of doing so,” said Elections Manager Dave Voye.

There are 957,000 registered voters in Allegheny County but the elections concedes that about 140,000 — more than 15 percent — are inactive.

This mountain of faulty registrations has now courted the attention of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has sent Allegheny and three others Pennsylvania counties letters threatening a federal lawsuit if the voter rolls aren’t cleaned up within 90 days.
