Supreme Court Postpones Hearing in Case That Could Have Significant Implications for Voter Fraud

November 8, 2017 | | The Daily Signal |

The chief plaintiff in the case is the A. Philip Randolph Institute, an organization for black trade unionists. It has been joined by a host of other liberal groups, such as Demos and the American Civil Liberties Union.

The plaintiffs contend the Ohio policy violates the 1993 federal National Voter Registration Act, better known as the “motor voter law.” Ohio argues the policy is fully compliant with the law, which also requires states to have up-to-date voting lists.

“Voting is the very foundation of our democracy, and Ohio’s voter-purge practice is a clear attempt to deny eligible people their right to have their voices heard,” Brenda Wright, vice president for policy and legal strategies at Demos, said in a statement.
