Georgia will pull about 100,000 “obsolete and outdated voter files” after recent voting rights law controversies, according to its secretary of state.

“Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a statement.

“That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year,” he added. “Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.”

The 101,789 obsolete voter files that are set to be yanked are comprised of about 67,000 people who have changed their addresses, 34,000 whose election mail was “returned to sender” about 275 Georgians who had “no-contact with elections officials” for five years or more, according to the secretary of state.

The removals come after Gov. Brian Kemp earlier this year signed sweeping voting restrictions into law.
