Voter Purge Litigation

Too often political groups, and even partisan state officials, use the practice of "voter purges" to disenfranchise voters. While it is important to maintain current databases of registered voters, purging voters, especially those just prior to a big election disenfranchise infrequent voters, who do not understand their vulnerability, or their rights to have them restored.

In the case of PILF v Winfrey, the LWV of Michigan joined on the side of the City of Detroit to help protect voters. On June 29, 2020, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) voluntarily asked the court to dismiss the case. On June 30, 2020, the parties stipulated to a dismissal of the case with prejudice.
