“We frequently see a slight decrease in registration when our counties scrub voter rolls,” said Secretary of State Michele Reagan in a press release. “List maintenance during these periods can often outpace registration, and this report indicates as much as we experienced increases in most of the state’s fifteen counties. As the state gears up for a busy election cycle this year, I’m confident our registration totals will continue their upward trend see a significant increase.”
