State Voter Registration List Maintenance 

Previewing the hearing, Chairman Harper said: “Our hearing addresses an important subject of good governance: the accuracy of our voter registration lists. Our nation’s elections are the bedrock upon which our democracy lies; therefore, it is paramount that every election be conducted in a fair and open manner. To that end, we have asked our witnesses to testify on the status of state voter registration list maintenance. Having accurate lists increases voter confidence, eases the administration of elections, reduces wait times, and helps prevents voter fraud and irregularity.”

Witnesses:
• The Honorable Connie Lawson, Indiana Secretary of State
• Mr. Dale Ho, Director of Voting Rights Project, American Civil Liberties Union
