Ohio One of 19 States Doing Massive Voter Roll Purges
September 30, 2008 CBS News Issued a report that Ohio is one of nineteen states according to a report by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York Law School has claimed that Ohio is ignoring a law that prohibits states from "purging" voters 90 days before an election.
Past voter purges
For example, in Muscogee County in Georgia, the Brennen Center reports, a county official purged 700 people from voter lists for criminal convictions. Many of the people who received letters informing them of the purge, however, had never even received a parking ticket. In Mississippi, a local election official recently discovered that another official had wrongly purged 10,000 voters “from her home computer.”
Another study, by the group U.S. PIRG, released last week, also looked at the issue of voter purging and discovered that 19 states are ignoring a federal law banning systematic purges within 90 days of a federal election. The 19 states include battleground states of Colorado, Ohio and Nevada.
