List Maintenance

Voter registration is only the first step: we also have to make sure that registrants get on the rolls, and stay on the rolls.

That’s why Project Vote works to protect eligible voters from wrongful purges, voter caging, “no match, no vote” programs, and other dangerous efforts to “clean-up” the lists.

Additionally, we fight to make sure that voter registration and list maintenance policies are publicly transparent, in order to ensure that states are not using arbitrary, error-prone, or politically-motivated criteria for rejecting applicants or purging voters.
