    The Court is not always right. You are not always right. Ohioans can change the law.

    I hope the people of Ohio see how ridiculous this ruling is and change the law protecting voters.

    Mr. Drone,

    The SCOUS always is. That is why they are the highest arbitrator in the land.

    As for me, you are correct. I was wrong once in May, 2014.

    Just because 4 justices are whack jobs, how do you figure it isn't constitutional? I mean, by definition, if the SCOUS says it is constitutional, it is constitutional.

    Your whackjob estimate is deficient, to be precise, to the tune of one.

    Outstanding!

    Now we need to strike from the voter roles those that are registered in more than one State, those that are not real persons, and, especially, those that are not US citizens.

    Mr. Dangermouse,

    While I appreciate your forte is dishonest ad hominem in debate, could you please address the argument and not me?

    This isn't a terrible decision. If states want to aggressively clean up their voter rolls, and take reasonable precautions and spaces of time to do so, that's their decision.

    I'm much less concerned about this than I am requiring things like birth certificates/passports to register, and strict photo ID at the polls.
    Thanks from labrea and Dragonfly5

    p.s., I would like to see a law that states if more than 2% of precincts in any one voting area: city, county, state, congressional district etc., have more votes cast than adult voters in that precinct and/or more votes cast than voters registered to vote in that precinct, then the entire voting area of those 2% must be audited by a federal task-force to ensure compliance with all federal, state and local voting laws and regulations.

I didn't agree but couldn't convince him to learn. Well, on his own, he did start following politics enough to feel comfortable to vote and does so.

    Then there are those that don't feel there is any need or great difference between the choices so don't bother. Till something like now happens and they decide to in fact show up and be counted.

    Neither factions should be disenfranchised.
    If you have been notified I honestly do not see the problem. Otherwise the deceased, moved away would be on the roles forever.

    You have no idea what a Poll Worker goes through.

    Now,if they do not warn you that is a different story. Same day registration would solve the problem.

    I don't know, but 2% sounded easier to get around than 1% for the Democrats. As for reporting more votes than voters, that happens, not often but it does happen and happens in Democrat controlled areas. Check out voting irregularities in Detroit. There are other areas.
