NYC's Board of Elections will admit it purged more than 200,000 voters from city rolls

Recommended Posts

New York City's Board of Elections will acknowledge it broke the law and be making serious changes in its practices, according to the proposed settlement of a legal fight over the purge of more than 200,000 voters from city rolls.

After many Brooklyn residents arrived at the polls during last year's presidential primary to learn they were deemed ineligible to vote, the good government group Common Cause New York filed suit. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office joined the litigation.

But rather than slug it out in Brooklyn federal court, the sides have been working on a settlement for months.

Now, a proposed pact slated for filing Wednesday would mandate reforms in the city election agency.
