“Active-duty service members disenfranchised by Fla. voter purge”

CBS News: “Tampa-area resident and Navy captain Peter Kehring has spent more than 30 years in the U.S. military. But due to Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott’s recent purge of voter rolls, Kehring will not be able to cast a vote on Election Day, reports Tampa CBS affiliate WTSP….And he’s not alone: Kehring is among 30 active and reserve service members in the Tampa area who have contacted the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections office, according to WTSP.”

This is the danger of voter purges just before the election—false positives which disenfranchise eligible voters.  Voter cleanup needs to happen in the off-season.   Better yet, we need to rationalize and nationalize registration for federal elections.
