More than 1.5 million voters could be purged from Texas voter rolls, according to an analysis by the Houston Chronicle. The newspaper warned Texans on Monday to keep an eye on their mail, so that voter registration cancellations do not go by unnoticed.
One in 10 voters has already had their registration suspended in Texas. For voters under 30, that number doubles to one in five.
The Secretary of State is required by law to regularly remove duplicates from the voter rolls and eliminate voters who moved out-of-state or died. But the process inevitably produces errors, and eligible voters can end up having their registration suspended. Between November 2008 to November 2010, more than 300,000 eligible voters were notified they could be removed from the voter rolls.
