Spring time is for spring cleaning and that is what Indiana wants to do to the voter rolls in the state.
The Indiana Secretary of State’s office will spend more than $2 million to purge the voter registration rolls in each of Indiana’s 92 counties, removing the names of voters who are dead, in prison, or have moved away. County election officials are responsible for keeping the voter rolls current, but the lack of money has caused some of them to fall behind.
Because of that some counties have more people listed on the active voter rolls that people of voting-age people who live there. It won’t be easy as the Secretary of State’s office will have to send out at least two mass mailings of postcards to Indiana voters as part of a sweeping effort to verify their voting status.
