Wisconsin election officials cancel 205K voter registrations

Register to Vote

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin elections officials have deactivated more than 205,000 voter registrations.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced Wednesday that it has deactivated 174,307 registrations because the voters hadn't cast a ballot in four years and didn't respond to a mailing.

Commission officials in the election battleground state said they’re required by law to identify people every two years who haven’t voted in the previous four years and deactivate them unless they wish to remain registered.

The commission also deactivated 31,854 registrations of voters who may have moved and didn't respond to a mailing.

Those voters can re-register and become eligible to cast ballots again.
