Colorado Sued over Purges
Common Cause has filed a complaint against Colorado Secretary of State Mike Coffman alleging that the state has executed illegal purges of the statewide voter registration database. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Colorado violated the NVRA by purging the voting rolls within 90 days of an election for unauthorized reasons, including the failure of post-registration address confirmation postcards to reach new registrants.
