Guess who won the gubernatorial election that year by 55K votes? Why, Brian Kemp, the Secretary of State who ordered the purge did.
Still waiting for a link.

You heard what they said? That perfectly reasonable things could also be used to suppress votes. The article cited explains and there are many others that deal with the goings on in NC .

And of course the ACLU. Would you claim no suppression if the Republican committee said none occurred?

They utilized the U.S. Postal Service’s National Change of Address registry (NCOA), returned mail, or a failure to vote in two federal election cycles in combination with a failure to return a “confirmation” postcard to cancel individual voter registrations.
Perfectly acceptable.

The state of Georgia carried out this voter purge using a sloppy methodology over the course of the last three years: They utilized the U.S. Postal Service’s National Change of Address registry (NCOA), returned mail, or a failure to vote in two federal election cycles in combination with a failure to return a “confirmation” postcard to cancel individual voter registrations.

“These methods violate commercial industry standards and the U.S. Post Office requirements for address verification and lead, as we discovered, to substantially inaccurate, ‘unreasonable’ results that deprive U.S. citizens of their constitutional right to vote,” the ACLU report reads.

I don't want to bother looking for articles, so I'll say this.

In the past, they have had Grandfathered voting rights, reading test and requirements to pass testing in order to vote in the south. So, blacks were asked questions and required to get them right before they were allowed to vote. Whites who could not read did not have to take this test if their grandfathers were voters, so they got to vote without any questions. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, many blacks were asked to take a test by white election officials, while new white registrants were not asked. SELECTIVE APPLICATION OF A RACIST LAW = VOTER SUPPRESSION.
Today's voter suppression goes towards ID laws. Now ID sounds like a good thing so that we can verify everyone has an ID. WELL, you know who doesn't have Drivers Licenses? Poor people who don't have a car. Now Why don't we give out free state issued IDs to all students in high school at their high schools if they live under the poverty line? It's pretty easy since most of the parents have already registered for the free lunches and such so it's just a matter of getting some computer to interface with the DMV's system and taking a picture. If that happens, I would be all for checking everyone's ID at the voter registration and voting booth. Get me free IDs for the poor, minority, underserved and even rural areas, and I will stand on your side with voting requires ID crowd.

From the wiki page on grandfather clause:
The original grandfather clauses were contained in new state constitutions and Jim Crow laws passed between 1890 and 1908 by white-dominated state legislatures including Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Virginia.[2] They restricted voter registration, effectively preventing African Americans from voting.[3] Racial restrictions on voting in place before 1870 were nullified by the Fifteenth Amendment.
