Another Mississippi county agrees to clean up voter rolls after being sued

Doing the job the Obama Justice Department wouldn’t, the American Civil Rights Union sued yet another Mississippi county with more registered voters than legally eligible residents – this time, notorious Noxubee – and again succeeded in obtaining a consent decree that obligates the County Election Commission to do its job of maintaining clean voter rolls as required by the National Voter Registration Act.


Noxubee County had voter registration rates well over 100 percent of its eligible population “for several election cycles,” a pretty clear indication that the county wasn’t meeting its voter registration list maintenance obligations under Section 8 of the NVRA.

“This is the fourth Mississippi county we’ve successfully sued over corrupt voter rolls since 2013,” said ACRU Chairman and CEO Susan A. Carleson. “These cases send a message to other counties around the nation that if they don’t keep accurate registration records, they’ll be next.”
