Supreme Court Upholds Ohio Voter Registration Removal Method
The controversial decision disheartens Democrats and emboldens Republicans.
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Ohio’s method of removing names from its voter rolls does not violate federal law.
The law allows an address confirmation notice be sent to voters who have not engaged in voter activity for two years. If a voter returns the notice or responds through the Internet then the information is updated. It should be noted that the notices are sent via prepaid mail. If the notice is ignored or the voter fails to update a registration over the next four years, the registration is canceled.
