    June 11 (UPI) -- In a move that could impact future elections, the U.S. Supreme Court said Monday the state of Ohio can continue its controversial practice of purging names from its voter rolls.


    In a 5-4 vote, the court said the practice, called "Supplemental Process," doesn't violate the National Voter Registration Act, which aims to prevent states from removing names from voter rolls if they don't actually vote.

    Six other states -- Georgia, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania and West Virginia -- also purge inactive voters' names, but Ohio's is known as the most extreme.


    Election officials in the state send address confirmation notices to voters who have not cast ballots for at least two years. If a voter responds, their information is updated and they remain on the list. If they don't, their name is removed.
    ----------------------------------

    Not sure about the legal arguments here but Ohio having that strict 2 year rule to stay active in the voter rolls or requiring a response to stay on the rolls would cut down on some crooked voting practices by the leftists.

    2 years is kind of extreme but I think a 5 year limit would be a good place to start with maybe a requirement for the response request to be sent to the most recent address in the DMV file also if it differs from the one listed in their voter registration records.

    This may come in handy for Pennsylvania with Trump but not sure what their rules actually are.

    I like it.

    If you can't vote in 2 years, and then suddenly the urge is renewed, the re-register to vote.

    With a photo ID of course.....

        Only in Chicago and only when a Daly is Mayor.

          I would think if they didn't vote in the last presidential election would be more appropriate, most voters only vote every 4 years.

            Yes and it loos like the time is actually just over 4 years in reality because you get a notice at 2 years but don't get dropped until after the election 2 years after that if their is no response.

            This may make Dems think twice about voting absentee ballot from their addresses for deceased relatives since their may be a handwriting trail to prosecute them easier.

            Honest question for our progressive posters: do you have any problem with this decision or voter ID laws that are designed to preserve the integrity of the vote? Disclaimer - I haven't read the opinions yet, so I'm not talking about the legal arguments made to justify this decision, just the decision as a matter of public policy. It seems that it is progressives that yell the loudest about this and given how easy it is to register and vote these policies seem like a no-brainer if you really want "one person, one vote." If you do have a problem with them, what is that problem?

            Since most people vote every 4 years - it should be a 5 year lapse. That is not unreasonable. If you missed a presidential election then you need to re-register.

              So let's look at the alternatives:

              First you might have moved and not bothered to tell the authorities. Say I move to Florida, don't bother to tell Tennessee, and vote in both states.

              You still live there and respond. You remain on the rolls.

              You still live there and don't respond, you don't care enough to respond so we are better off with you not voting and probably you would not vote anyway.

              Seems like only a win!!!

                Unless you're the Uncle Tom registrar and you admit to voting in two states.

                  This is a total lie. They are NOT PURGED after two years. They are sent a notice to their legal address asking if they still live there and want to remain registered. They are only purged if they do not respond in some lengthy time, years I think. The point is obvious, to keep the @Gatoravatara off the world from voting in several states.

                  It isnt a purging. Lying fvkking dems, as always.

                      Im sorry, it was a general statement playing off your posts and your quote, not a reply directly to you or implying you didnt understand that already. I know you did.

                      I should have made it clear that the Statist Controlled Media's spin was a lie.
