The ‘use it or lose it’ law is aimed at removing people who have died, or are otherwise not supposed to be voting in current elections.

Democrats and other liberals are not thrilled that Georgia has jettisoned 107,000 voters from the rolls under the ‘use it or lose it’ law.

The Hill has reported that Georgia officials removed an estimated 107,000 people from the rolls based on a new law that allows it.

The people removed have not voted in previous elections and this sort of change, many people agree, is not good for certain liberals.

Under the new law, labeled ‘use it or lose it,’ an analysis found that voters were removed if they failed to vote or failed to respond to a communication from an election official during a three-year-time period.

At least nine states have similar laws that allow commissions to purge voters from the rolls, and many agree that the law is a good idea.

For example, CBS reported that ‘hundreds’ of dead people were voting in the greater Los Angeles area, writing, “A comparison of records by David Goldstein, investigative reporter for CBS2/KCAL9, has revealed hundreds of so-called dead voters in Southern California, a vast majority of them in Los Angeles County.

One such voter was John Cenkner, and “He took a lot of time choosing his candidates,” said Annette Givans, his daughter.

“Cenkner died in Palmdale in 2003. Despite this, records show that he somehow voted from the grave in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010. But he’s not the only one. CBS2 compared millions of voting records from the California Secretary of State’s office with death records from the Social Security Administration and found hundreds of so-called dead voters.”

“Specifically, 265 in Southern California and a vast majority of them, 215, in Los Angeles County alone. The numbers come from state records that show votes were cast in that person’s name after they died. In some cases, Goldstein discovered that they voted year after year.”

This is despite generalize liberal claims that such practices are not occurring.

The investigation into Georgia’s purge “concluded” that many people removed from the list don’t know about it, until they try to vote. However, such a conclusion is highly speculative.

It could be that these 107,000 are deceased or have possibly moved out of state.

Officials who support the law accurately argue that the policy helps prevent voter fraud. They confirm that people who have not voted three-years running, or have not responded to communications from election commissions, have moved away and should not be on the rolls.

The governor’s race in Georgia is heating up between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams.
