Indiana Seeks To Purge Inactive Voter Registrations
Indiana has 4.4 million active registered voters but as many as 700,000 or about 16% of that total no longer live at a deliverable address. The State Board of Elections mailed follow-up postcards to the addresses of returned postcards from an initial mailing in an effort to update the state's registered voter lists. If the voter doesn't cast any votes in elections held before January, 2017, their name will be removed from the registered voter list. Indiana has been criticized for having more registered voters in many counties than eligible adults residing in the county.
