Supreme Court gives Ohio right to purge thousands of voters from its rolls

quote [ In a 5-4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court gave Ohio a victory Monday in a fight over the state's method for removing people from the voter rolls, a practice that civil rights groups said discourages minority turnout. At least a dozen other politically conservative states said they would adopt a similar practice if Ohio prevailed.

The Supreme Court got this one wrong. The right to vote is not 'use it or lose it,'" said Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters of the United States. "This decision will fuel the fire of voter suppressors across the country who want to make sure their chosen candidates win reelection, no matter what the voters say." ]

It was always all about SCOTUS in 2016.

Actually, according to the most recent press on this, the key number is not the 58K you cite, but the 95,000 non-citizens who are eligible, and "While some individuals on the list could have become a naturalized citizen after obtaining their ID card, a DPS spokesperson told the Tribune that the agency is "very confident" in the accuracy of the list." But for the sake of argument, let's say the number is exaggerated. Let's say it's have that - it's still 50 thousand people and utterly discredits the notion that "Research shows" that voter fraud is "is extremely rare".

Let's say it's half that - it's still 50 thousand people, which utterly discredits the notion that "Research shows" that voter fraud is "extremely rare".
