Voters are purged from the Voter Registration rolls only under certain circumstances. Voters are never removed solely because they have not voted. However, voters can be removed under the following circumstances:
- request from the voter to be removed
- upon learning that a voter changed their name, except by marriage, and failed to notify the Election Commission
- upon the death of the voter
- upon receiving notice that the voter has been convicted of a felony
- upon written confirmation that the voter has moved outside of Shelby County
- if the voter fails to respond to a confirmation notice and if the voter fails to otherwise update their registration over a period of 2 regular November elections following the date the notice was sent.
