The State Board of Elections said Friday that 1,425 names on the voter rolls of North Carolina belong to people who likely do not meet one basic requirement to cast a ballot: U.S. citizenship.
Statewide, 262 have voted in past elections, officials said.
Election officials gave a breakdown by county of the 1,425 people they have flagged as possible ineligible voters.
The largest counties had the largest numbers: 73 in Forsyth County; 115 in Guilford County; 252 in Wake County; 313 in Mecklenburg County.
Statewide, 109 are likely in the U.S. under the federal program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, officials said. The 109 tally is lower than the 145 – and then 119 – reported earlier this week by elections officials because of further investigation, officials said.
DACA provides qualified younger immigrants a two-year reprieve from deportation but no direct path to citizenship.
