Virginia State Police prepares election ‘watch team’ for voter removals

Virginia State Police and state election officials have prepared a plan for determining whether voters who use Virginia’s same-day voter registration were mistakenly removed from the rolls. It’s unclear if the process is directly connected to the incorrect removal of nearly 3,400 voters from the state rolls ahead of the Nov. 7 election, with all 140 seats in the General Assembly on the ballot. The Virginia Department of Elections, or ELECT, said in an Oct. 27 release the individuals were people with probation violations who were “misclassified” as much more serious — and in Virginia, disenfranchising — felony convictions.
