The Ongoing War Behind Ohio's Extreme Voter Purge

Ohio may have won its Supreme Court battle to implement its extreme “use it or lose it” voter purges. But the war over the purging process rages on.

A new Republican secretary of state — who has introduced new measures that, in theory, could help prevent eligible voters from losing their ballot access — is catching heat for continuing with his predecessor’s purge program. The program begins the process for removal based on a person sitting out a certain number of elections.

“Ohio is looking at purging about a half million from the voter rolls this year alone which is a large percentage of Ohio’s population,” Jen Miller, the executive director of Ohio’s League of Women Voters told TPM.

LWV and other voting rights group are holding a press conference Thursday calling for Secretary of State Frank LaRose to stop or delay a purge set to occur next month.

********** That's one of the reasons Republicans have a stranglehold on our state .... If you don't like how certain people vote, just purge 'em from the rolls ........

1. Cheating is all they have.

Voter purges, dark money, gerrymandering, just downright cheating. Any election held on the up-and-up is an election they'll lose, and they know it, and they're scared to death of it. I fear this state's chances of remaining purple are gone with that insipid DeWine and the rest of the Rethugs running roughshod over us.
