Ohio's Fight Over Voting

This is absolutely unbelievable, unless you know the GOP well. Here's how you WIN an election: You remove 200,000 voters from the registration roles because they didn't vote for six years.
"Just last year, Ohio’s 20 most populous counties purged more than 200-thousand inactive voters, according to research by PBS NewsHour Weekend. In Ohio’s largest county, Cuyahoga, with heavily Democratic Cleveland- nearly 52,000 voters were purged."
"Attorney Dan Tokaji, who’s a co-counsel on the lawsuit, says Ohio’s law violates the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, better known as the motor voter bill, which requires states to improve opportunities to register to vote, such as when applying for a driver’s license.
What neither Ohio nor any other state can do is to initiate the purge process solely because of a registered voter’s failure to vote.
But Ohio did. Six other states — Alaska, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Georgia, and West Virginia — also consider voter inactivity when striking names from lists of registered voters."

AND that's called election fraud or voter suppression, folks. No wonder the GOP was worried, but it wasn't the VOTERS who were fraudulent. It was the legislature. What does ONE of the lawmakers have to say when interviewed on PBS?? "*shrug* You don't like the law....change it."

The Republicans across this country want as few people as possible casting votes. Just last week , three red states had their voter suppression laws struck down. In the case of North Carolina, the judge came right out and said that there is clear evidence that the law in North Carolina targeted minority voters.

Isn't in comforting to know that Republicans in 37 states have erected barriers to Americans participating in our democracy on the grounds of voter fraud that they are unable to document but refuse to vote to disallow non-citizens on our terror watch lists from purchasing weapons ?

That is not true we want living people, who vote once, and can verify who they are not hare really but Dems, especially in that specific corridor have a tendency to over represent. In other words more votes than actual people!

In the North Carolina case the judge pointed out that the state of North Carolina could not document ONE case of voter fraud in court. Yes, and in Georgia they're showing up at black people's front doors because their sooooo concerned that they are living people. Yes folks, the Republicans do wish to go back in time.

A Georgia town is sending police to black residents’ homes to challenge their voting rights

Jim Crow laws have been off the books for years, but that hasn’t stopped individual states and cities from coming up with new ways to depress minority voter turnout.

Last week, for instance, a U.S. appeals court struck down a North Carolina voter ID law that it said was specifically designed to lower turnout among black voters. And now the New York Times is reporting that a town in Georgia is using its police department to challenge the rights of its black residents to vote.

Specifically, the Times reports that the Hancock County Board of Elections and Registration has been “systematically questioning the registrations of more than 180” black residents in Sparta, Georgia “by dispatching deputies with summonses commanding them to appear in person to prove their residence or lose their voting rights.”

The 180 black residents make up roughly one fifth of Sparta’s total registered voters, the Times notes.

On any issue, Republican legislators have the ability to put their heads together and come up with a rock garden.

Still doesn't justify removing 200,000 people from the voters roles simply because they haven't voted lately. Many of them will likely be unaware they can't vote until they show up at the polls. I'm sure the state spent the money to send a letter to all 200,000 voters telling them thy have been removed. What they did is patently illegal.

Id. § 20507(b)(2). The NVRA’s restrictions reflect Congress’ intent that “once a citizen is registered to vote, he or she should remain on the voting list so long as he or she remains eligible to vote in that jurisdiction.” S. Rep. No. 103-6, at 17 (1993).

They are probably dead. If alive, dems want someone else to cast their own vote, and then for one of the 200,000 that won't show up. This is nothing but dems making sure even people who won't vote vote for Hillary!

Slamming Ohio will not gain you favor with me. Arizona has more than two skeletons in their closet.

Illegal aliens in California have been granted drivers licenses. Should they be allowed to vote?
Should they have been granted licenses in the first place?
