North Carolina’s voter rolls are getting cleaner every day thanks to TTV research
Remember in early 2012 when Pew Research reported that millions of voter registrations across the country were plagued with errors? This week, True the Vote’s advanced research team had overwhelming success in facilitating the removal of more than a thousand duplicate voter registrations in a handful of North Carolina counties. Wake and Union Counties notified TTV that 90% of the potential duplicate voter registrations we flagged were indeed true matches. To date, Wake, Guilford and Union Counties have confirmed that roughly 1,100 duplicate voters have been merged or purged from the rolls. If you have the skills necessary to crunch large amounts of data, we’d love your help. Check out the TTV Knowledge Network to get started.

Did you know? PEW Research highlighted a study which detailed the total amount it would cost to collect ALL voter files in the country. For True the Vote to build a national voter roll research databank, it costs $126,482 just for the raw data!

Legislation on the Move
Voter Registration bill HB 647 was filed. This bill provides exemption from public records requirements for specified information regarding voter or voter registration applicant.
Absentee Voting bill SB 184 is scheduled to be heard this week by the Senate Appropriations committee. A provision in this bill creates a task force to study military and overseas voting, including the development and implementation of an online voting system.
Omnibus bill A 4613 was vetoed and the "absolute veto" was received in the Assembly. This bill would have authorized “The Democracy Act” to establish online voter registration, automatic voter registration, and allowed for the pre-registration of 17-year-olds.
