Or of greater concern are two situation that I can see. First as an example, Mr. RNG Jr. didn't vote for I believe four elections. When I would discuss it with him his reason was that he wasn't sufficiently knowledgeable to be able to make a good decision so it would be better if he just didn't vote. 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.

This is a problem that can or could be solved easily if we had a national right to vote that took the power from the states and gave it to each citizen equally. If we did that, we could easily create a system that makes everyone registered constantly without worrying about any of the things Ohio has to deal with. Until we do that and implement a national ID system with the right to vote spelled out clearly for each person, states will use the law to pick voters.

Seems odd that a government agency would take away someone's voter registration for no reason other than. Ot participating.

Almost as if folks are trying to place an undue burden on others in order to make voting as prohibitive as possible.

Oh great, and as we all know - Republicans won't abuse the holy hell out of this decision. :rolleyes:

At least a dozen other politically conservative states said they would adopt a similar practice if Ohio prevailed, as a way of keeping their voter registration lists accurate and up to date.

nothing pisses off liberals more than their state trying to prevent them from voting. Presumably, dems will be smart enough to get the word out about what these states are trying to do. There's too much at stake for them to just sit on their hands and not act proactively. From now until the midterms they should be as diligent as Trump and his supporter are at driving home that one focused message. This is what Republican's do when they're given power EVERY SINGLE TIME.

If voting is important to you then you vote.

I registered to vote when I turned 18 in 1981 and have voted every 2 years.

If you don't vote over a 6 year period, you don't care.

Mr. hughey,

The liberals can't seem to explain why dropping a SASE into a mail box is racist.

Mr. RNG,

I can't see why you, nor anybody else would have a problem with this. If they have not voted in 3 consecutive elections, it means either they have no interest in participating in the electoral process, or most likely, they have moved and are no longer in that jurisdiction and have probably re-registered in another place.
Your nor the state's supposition of what voters are doing is quite frankly none of yours nor the state's business.

The people of the state of Ohio should force the changing of this law. It is none of the state's business how a person choose to vote.

Mr. Drone,

The SCOUS says it is. I know, I know, liberals love voter fraud, so they get upset by measures which curtail it.
