“The troubling issue of invalid registration still persists, which we detected while cleaning up the latest registration data.

“It seems that many registrants, either out of ignorance that they do not need to re-register if they had done so before, or a belief that our systems will not detect this infraction, have gone out to register again.

“This is despite repeated warnings by the Commission against this illegal action.

In addition, there are also registrants whose data were incomplete and did not meet our business rules for inclusion in the register.

“This infraction happened in all States of the federation. No State is immune from it. These invalid registrations will not be included in the register of voters. This development is worrisome because of the time and resources expended in handling these cases.”
