Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “Arizona Senate votes to clean up permanent voter rolls”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Arizona lawmakers are closer to putting a check on the state’s permanent mail-in voter registration.

The state Senate has approved Senate Bill 1485 along party lines. If enacted, Arizonans who fail to vote early over four consecutive elections would receive a notification in the mail asking them if they would like to remain registered. Failure to return the card results in the voter’s removal from the roll.

Under current law, a voter is removed only if they request it, mail is returned from the voter address as undeliverable or their status is updated by the state to be inactive.

The county recorder would be required to send out the notification of removal by Dec. 1 of the even numbered year after the voter misses an election. The voter has 30 days to return the notice.

Democrats criticized the bill, saying it would disenfranchise voters who may not choose to vote in every election.
