WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court on Monday upheld OH election rules that allow the cancellation of voter registrations for citizens who haven't voted in two years and don't confirm their eligibility.
In delivering the opinion of the court, Justice Samuel Alito said the law does not violate that clause or any other provision of the NRVA.
The SCOTUS ruling wasn't limited to the Buckeye State, as a handful of other states follow the voter purge act as well. All states update their registers by cutting people who have moved or died, but this case centered on whether missing a few votes was sufficient grounds to drop someone. But not everyone who moves notifies the post office, the state said.
"It is undisputed that OH 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. Rather, it "removes registrants only when they have failed to vote and have failed to respond to a change-of-residence notice".
Under Ohio's procedure, elections officials send a notification to any voter who fails to vote in a two-year period.
Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. said the court's job was not to decide whether OH has adopted the "ideal method" for keeping rolls up to date, but only whether it complies with federal law. In any case, I'm sticking with my original view: the OH law pushes right to the edge of what's legal under federal law, but it doesn't go beyond.
Other states have taken steps to erase duplicate voter registrations without imperiling someone's right to vote. Notices are sent to voters whose registration is flagged. In it, she said that friend-of-the-court briefs in the case had shown how the OH system "has disproportionately affected minority, low-income, disabled, and veteran voters".
"In the state's three largest counties that include Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus, voters have been struck from the rolls in Democratic-leaning neighborhoods at roughly twice the rate as in Republican neighborhoods", Reuters wrote in their report.
The court ruled 5 to 4 that Ohio's process does not violate federal law.
Nineteen states use voter inactivity in the process of purging their databases, though only a handful make non-voting as central as OH does. President Donald Trump's administration also supported Ohio's position.
Teddy Roosevelt once said, "There is no enemy of free government more unsafe and none so insidious as the corruption of the electorate".
"This wrongly decided decision paves the way to mass disenfranchisement in OH and around the country", top House of Representatives Democrat Nancy Pelosi added.
"If states take today's decision as a sign that they can be even more reckless and kick eligible voters off the rolls, we will fight back in the courts, the legislatures and with our community partners across the country", Demos attorney Stuart Naifeh said.
But Ohio's law was considered the harshest in the nation because it kick-started the purging process after only two years.
"Leftists opposed to election integrity suffered a big defeat today".
