A federal judge struck down an Indiana law that tried to more quickly – and illegally – purge people from its voter rolls.

The case, filed by the citizens advocacy group Common Cause Indiana, went back nearly three years.

Republicans are advancing a bill to replace Indiana’s method of quickly purging voters from its voter rolls after the current system was halted in court.

One of Indiana’s methods to purge voter rolls will remain shut down after a federal appeals court decision Tuesday.
