■ The date of the Lau­ryn Hill con­cert was in­cor­rect in Fri­day’s Go Guide. The cor­rect date is Oct. 13.

■ Ap­prox­i­mately 668,000 vot­ing reg­is­tra­tions were can­celed last year by the Ge­or­gia Sec­re­tary of State’s Of­fice. The num­ber was in­cor­rect in an ar­ti­cle in Fri­day’s Metro sec­tion on ef­forts to reg­is­ter mi­nor­ity vot­ers in metro At­lanta.

■ Clar­i­fi­ca­tion: An ar­ti­cle on the front page on Wed­nes­day, Sept. 26, 2018, about voter reg­is­tra­tion can­cel­la­tions cited num­bers from the U.S. Elec­tion As­sis­tance Com­mis­sion that are dis­puted by the Ge­or­gia Sec­re­tary of State’s Of­fice. As noted in the ar­ti­cle, the fed­eral re­port in­cluded vot­ers who trans­ferred their reg­is­tra­tions when they moved from one Ge­or­gia county to an­other. Those vot­ers’ reg­is­tra­tions weren’t can­celed, ac­cord­ing to the Ge­or­gia Sec­re­tary of State’s Of­fice. New fig­ures pro­vided by the state show it can­celed 717,912 voter reg­is­tra­tions from 2012 to 2016, which is less than half the 1.5 mil­lion reg­is­tra­tion re­movals re­ported by the U.S. Elec­tion As­sis­tance Com­mis­sion. Reg­is­tra­tion can­cel­la­tions in Ge­or­gia de­clined from 2012 to 2016 com­pared to the pre­vi­ous four years, when 734,808 reg­is­tra­tions were can­celed.
