"A Wisconsin judge ordered the removal of nearly 234,000 people from the state’s voter rolls on Friday because they may have moved, a controversial court decision that could influence the 2020 election in a state Donald Trump narrowly won in 2016.
In October, the Wisconsin Elections Commission sent a letter warning nearly a quarter-million voters they’d need to reregister their addresses to remain on the voter rolls because the commission believed they had moved.
“If you move, even to an apartment in the same building, you must update your voter record by reregistering,” Wisconsin’s chief elections official, Meagan Wolfe, said at the time.
The letter didn’t give people a deadline to reregister and an October press release from the elections commission said anyone who received the letter would remain on the list of eligible voters until 2021. But a lawsuit filed in October by the conservative group Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty said the elections commission is required by law to purge anyone who received the letter from the voter rolls if they do not reregister within 30 days of receipt."
