Georgia purged 107,000 voters just because they haven’t voted recently

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s determined strategy to kick people off the state’s voter rolls included making sure 107,000 voters are ineligible simply because they opted not to participate in elections recently.

The news comes as Republican Kemp, running for governor in the state, is under intense scrutiny following an Associated Press report documenting how Kemp’s office was holding up the registrations of over 53,000 voters.

And now comes word that in July of 2017, 100,000 citizens were removed simply for not casting a vote in a recent election. During that month, “more than half a million people — 8 percent of Georgia’s registered voters — were cut from the voter rolls,” according to APM Reports.
