Equal Justice Center
The United States Supreme Court in Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute weighed in on
a current polarizing issue, voter roll purging. The Court held in a 5-4 decision that Ohio’s
“list-maintenance” model of voter purging was acceptable under National Voter Registration Act
of 1993 and the Help America Vote Act of 2002. However, the dissenting opinions, as well as
the amicus briefs submitted by civil rights groups, testify to the controversialness of the decision.
Thus, the Equal Justice Center will seek to research, what models of voter purging are currently
utilized by the states as well as what the impacts of these different models are? The research
team will be conducted with and through a partnership with Demos, a public policy organization
dedicated to research and collaboration for the sake of equality and democracy.
