West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner said the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision upholding an Ohio law regarding the removal of inactive voters after not participating in two elections, will allow states with similar laws, including West Virginia, to improve its voter rolls.
The voter has to be contacted first prior to the person’s name being placed on an inactive voter list. If the person responds, their information is updated.
West Virginia has a similar law, with a key difference being a four-year period.
