An election-integrity group is challenging the status of nearly 15,000 voters reportedly registered in both Fairfax County and Maryland.
Virginia Voters Alliance on Wednesday urged Fairfax’s electoral board to do what state officials have so far not done across the commonwealth: Purge those duplicate voters.
VVA President Reagan George complained the state Department of Elections is classifying all duplicate registrations as “inactive voters.”
That means 43,896 voters alleged to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland would stay in Virginia’s statewide database — and remain eligible to vote — until 2019.
George praised the Fairfax board for working with Maryland to identify duplicate registrations in its jurisdiction. He called on Fairfax General Registrar Cameron Quinn to cull the voter list as soon as possible.
