CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - More than 3,000 names were purged last week from Curry County’s voter roll.

The Clovis News Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1TnW6wy) that a document obtained through a public records request shows that people were purged if they hadn’t voted before August 2012.

Curry County Clerk Rosalie Riley says she had to purge the names to comply with state law, and only eight people re-registered to vote out of 3,324.

Riley said she’s placed ads in local papers and made announcements online and on radio stations in an attempt to notify voters being purged that they can still re-register before elections begin.

Riley she said people have started calling her office after her ads began to appear.
