Supreme Court Gives Green Light To Ohio’s Voter Purges

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that Ohio could continue to use an aggressive process for removing people from its voting rolls, saying the procedure did not run afoul of federal voter protections. [...]

Stuart Naifeh, senior counsel at Demos, which helped represent the challengers along with the American Civil Liberties Union, said the group would continue to fight efforts to aggressively remove voters from the rolls.

“The fight does not stop here. 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,” he said in a statement.
