"The reason we posted the list online was to crowdsource this information to allow as many people as possible to review it," said Walter Jones, a spokesman for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. "If there is data they think needs to be updated, we encourage people to bring it to our attention so we can review their findings and make adjustments as needed."
All of the 293 voters erroneously targeted for removal live in Lowndes County near the Florida border. They were initially included on the state's cancellation list because voter registration records failed to fully incorporate voter history records after the state moved to a new registration system in 2013, according to APM Reports.
Voters on Georgia's cancellation list can save their registrations if they sign and return a postage-paid letter mailed last week by election officials within 30 days. Voters can check their registration status at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov.
