EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – A federal appeals court keeps Indiana’s voter registration purge law on hold.
The law would have allowed local election authorities to immediately purge voter registrations if the program called “Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck” found a duplicate registration in another state for that person.
The seventh US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a 2018 ruling blocking the law from taking effect.
The crosscheck program has been criticized for allegedly targeting minorities and canceling registrations without voters’ consent.
