Cleaning Up the Voter List
Arkansas is cleaning up it active voter registration list. So far over 20,000 voters have been found to be duplicated on the list.
Election officials attributed the problem, revealed in an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette examination of the new statewide list, to people who registered to vote upon moving to a new county while their old registration remained active.
This is just a start to correcting the voter rolls, but it is a good start.
Since the system became operational and began using data from those agencies, the counties have removed the names of 3, 835 dead voters and 1, 299 convicted felons who have not completed their sentences and remain ineligible to cast ballots, according to the secretary of state’s office.
Once the list is cleaned up it should be easier to keep it up to date and accurate.
