2017/06/28 – 150,000 names erroneously on R.I. voting list – Providence Journal
Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea has identified roughly 150,000 people erroneously on the state’s voters rolls and has begun to clean them up, she told The Providence Journal on Tuesday.
Nearly 65,000 names have been removed since Gorbea took office in 2015, and another 30,000 have been marked as “inactive,” a first step toward removing them.
“It’s not really fraud,” Gorbea said. “It’s really just inaccuracies.”
