North Carolina Voter List Maintenance: 2023 Update 

Voting Rights

Since the 2020 election, SCSJ has been tracking North Carolina’s voter list maintenance, and specifically its massive voter removals that occur every odd year under North Carolina’s “no-contact” process. In 2021, we uncovered that North Carolina’s removal of 391,415 voters disproportionately impacted voters of color. Read more about this process and the 2021 in our explainer, Understanding Voter Registration List Maintenance

The data for 2023 is in, and it shows the same disproportionate impact as before. The full analysis is below, as well as recommendations for how we can, and must, do better to allow all voters to get and stay registered in North Carolina.
