Raffensperger Maintains Accurate Voter Lists for Georgia, Works with Counties to Update Inaccurate Data from Voter Rolls

December 4th, 2023

Atlanta - Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is announcing further actions to secure the cleanest voter lists in the nation. Clean lists ensure a smooth check-in process for voters, making it easier for county election to do their job. Between now and early December, county election offices will mail 127,904 notices to Georgia voters who have filed a National Change of Address (NCOA) form with the US Postal Service indicating they have likely moved from one address within their county to another. According to Georgia law, voters on this list will be automatically updated to their new address within the county. These voters do not need to respond to the notice to keep their Active status.

“Getting rid of bad and inaccurate voter data from the voter rolls helps prevent fraud, making it easier for county officials to do their jobs, and strengthens confidence in Georgia’s election results,” said Secretary Brad Raffensperger. “We are proud that we’ve continued to strengthen our list maintenance process and reaffirm our commitment to accurate voter lists.”

Already this year, an additional 688,394 pieces of mail have been sent to voters as part of list maintenance procedures, which includes 185,208 notices mailed in September reflecting 100,685 voters who filed Out-of-State National Change of Address forms and 84,523 Out-of-County National Change of Address forms.

The 688,394 pieces of mail also include 82,077 notices sent to voters who may have moved out of state and 37,285 postcards sent to voters who possibly moved within the state using information received from Georgia’s membership in the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). These are voters who appear to have moved based on data from the Department of Driver Services.

Georgia will continue to conduct list maintenance throughout this year in preparation for the 2024 election cycle, a continuation of robust steps taken by Secretary Raffensperger to ensure the most accurate voter records as Georgia heads into the 2024 Presidential election.


Georgia is recognized as a national leader in elections. It was the first state in the country to implement the trifecta of automatic voter registration, at least 17 days of early voting (which has been called the “gold standard”), and no-excuse absentee voting. Georgia continues to set records for voter turnout and election participation, seeing the largest increase in average turnout of any other state in the 2018 midterm election and record turnout in 2020, and 2022. 2022 achieved the largest single day of in-person early voting turnout in Georgia midterm history utilizing Georgia’s secure, paper ballot voting system. Most recently, Georgia ranked #1 for Election Integrity by the Heritage Foundation, a top ranking for Voter Accessibility by the Center for Election Innovation & Research and tied for number one in Election Administration by the Bipartisan Policy Center.
