In Huge Defeat to Leftists, Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Ohio’s Voting Roll Purge
Ed. Supreme Court makes it more difficult for the dead to vote.
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Ohio is allowed to purge eligible
voters from the state’s registration records if they have not cast ballots in a
Justice Samuel Alito
In a 5-4 ruling issued by Justice Samuel Alito, the
high court ruled that Ohio’s law to trigger the removal of inactive voters from
the state’s registry can be enforced.
State officials argued that the process used by Ohio for more than 20
years is constitutional and legal, and meant to ensure election security.
Civil liberties groups challenged the state’s program for removing
thousands of people from voter rolls based on their failure to vote in recent
elections, claiming it violated the National Voter Registration Act.
But Alito said that Ohio is complying with the National Voter
Registration Act of 1993. At least six other states have similar rules in
place, and Monday’s decision could lead others to adopt similar procedures.
“It is undisputed that Ohio does not remove a registrant on
change-of-residence grounds unless the registrant is sent and fails to mail
back a return card and then fails to vote for an additional four years,” Alito
wrote in his opinion.
He concluded: “We have no authority to second-guess Congress or to decide
whether Ohio’s Supplemental Process is the ideal method for keeping its voting
rolls up to date. The only question before us is whether it violates federal
law. It does not.
Ohio has been purging
its voter rolls for over 20 years.
The state removes voters
from the rolls after the election board sends a notice and if the individual
hasn’t voted in 4 years.
Justice Alito cited a
shocking statistic that“24 million
voter registrations—about one in eight—are “either invalid or significantly
inaccurate,” and that about 2.75 million people “are said to be registered to
vote on more than one state,” Fox News reported.
His opinion was supported by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices
Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch.”
Judicial Watch has
been fighting for cleaner voter rolls in an effort to restore election
integrity. ‘Leftists suffered a big defeat today,’ Fitton said.
Fantastic ruling for clean
elections by the Supreme Court today. In fact, the High Court upheld a
settlement agreement between Ohio and @JudicialWatch to help clean voter
rolls in Ohio. Leftists opposed to election integrity suffered a big defeat
