The Supreme Court is expected this month to announce rulings on two key voting rights cases that could reshape how Americans nationwide cast ballots in federal elections.
The Supreme Court this week will take up a potentially landmark case that could end almost five decades of Justice Department intervention that gives the federal government control over voting decisions in states and localities with a history of discrimination.
Ms. Perez said interstate agreements can help with voter roll maintenance, but they also can flag names that shouldn't be purged.
"The problem comes when the procedures that are undertaken to clean the rolls are done in a way that threatened eligible voters with removal without enough time to correct errors, without the kind of oversight or transparency to reveal any problems in the identification process, and they're being done in a haphazard way that's prone to a lot of mistakes," she said.
