Supreme Court allows Ohio to purge voters for not voting


WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is allowing Ohio to clean up its voting rolls by targeting people who haven’t cast ballots in a while.

The justices rejected, by a 5-4 vote Monday, arguments that the practice violates a federal law intended to increase the ranks of registered voters. A handful of other states also use voters’ inactivity to trigger a process that could lead to their removal from the voting rolls.

Justice Samuel Alito said for the court that Ohio is complying with the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. He was joined by his four conservative colleagues.

The four liberal justices dissented.

Partisan fights over ballot access are being fought across the country. Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to suppress votes from minorities and poorer people who tend to vote for Democrats. Republicans have argued that they are trying to promote ballot integrity and prevent voter fraud.

Under Ohio rules, registered voters who fail to vote in a two-year period are targeted for eventual removal from registration rolls, even if they haven’t moved and remain eligible. The state said it only uses the disputed process after first comparing its voter lists with a US Postal Service list of people who have reported a change of address. But not everyone who moves notifies the post office, the state said.

So the state asks people who haven’t voted in two years to confirm their eligibility. If they do, or if they show up to vote over the next four years, voters remain registered. If they do nothing, their names eventually fall off the list of registered voters.


What ? What ?? What ??? So the democrats are going to lose ALL those dead people votes ? :wink::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:


Yeah, What a shame!!! :clown_face:


As well as illegal vote.

Ohio Secretary of State John Husted informed the public on Monday that nearly 400 non-citizens were able to register to vote, 82 of whom cast ballots.

Husted’s office reportedly found the 385 illegal registrations during a biennial review of the voter database in the state that has 7.9 million registered voters. and used the number to poo-poo the fraud, because hey, if they only catch a few here or there, it’s not like it’s a big deal right? Never mind that it adds up.

That’s leftist “logic” for you. reported:

Husted is sending law enforcement the names of the 82 non-citizens who voted, so officials can investigate and decide whether to prosecute. His office will send letters to the non-citizens who registered but never voted, requesting they cancel their registration. If they fail to do so, they could ultimately face prosecution. Election fraud can carry a fifth-degree felony charge in Ohio.

As Trump has alleged voter fraud in last year’s election, Husted has countered that election fraud isn’t a common problem. Still, his office has boasted of its three reviews of the voter rolls to look for non-citizens, the first such reviews conducted by an Ohio secretary of state.

A sampling of a few caught.


The Trump appointee sides with the Conservatives in a great decision that ensures legal voting rights for U.S. citizens.
All the illegals enablers will be whining again. :imp:
