The Oklahoma National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has called for the State Election Board to scuttle plans to purge 134,000 registered voters from its rolls.

According to the NAACP, data collected across the nation shows African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, low-income people, students, and voters with disabilities are disproportionately harmed by “use it or lose it” voter purging processes.

“This voter purge is based on a shaky foundation and will greatly harm unaware voters of this threat to their democratic right to vote,” said NAACP President Anthony R. Douglas. “It is well known by the State Board of Elections that these mailers promote voter disenfranchisement, as expert studies have found that more than 60 percent of all voters receiving these mailers mistake them for junk mail, are confused or otherwise do not respond. We find it troubling and inexcusable that the State Board of Elections has not attempted to outreach to the public to alert voters that their voting rights are threatened, and they need to take action.”
