Statement from Secretary Merrill on Supreme Court Ruling on Ohio's Voter Purge Process


June 11, 2018 - MONTGOMERY - The following is a statement from Secretary Merrill on the recent court ruling in the Ohio Voter Purge Process:

"I am pleased to see that the Supreme Court upheld the maintenance process used by Ohio to ensure voters rolls are the most accurate for voters on election day. 

The process in Alabama is slightly different and requires voters miss two federal elections and then not respond to two consecutive mailers which are sent to voters to attempt to ensure the most up-to-date address information is on file with the voter registration system.

We have made it our mission in the Alabama Secretary of State's Office to not only ensure every Alabamian is a registered voter with a photo id but also that the voter information contained within our voter rolls is the most accurate an up-to-date. This process allows us to contact voters to ensure that information is accurate."
