Eligible Voters Are Being Dropped From Voter Rolls

Hosted by

A story in today's New York Times that reports on state records and Social Security data in six of the so-called "swing states" in the presidential election -- Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Nevada and North Carolina -- finds that federal law appears to have been violated in two ways. Tens of thousands of people who correctly believe they have the right to vote have been removed from the rolls, and many others have been blocked from registering in the first place. Adam Skaggs is counsel at the New York University's Brennan Center for Justice.
