The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) ruled on Monday that several battleground states can purge inactive voters from their registrations, in a move that's certain to benefit the GOP, as every liberal justice voted against it.
The case was brought before the Supreme Court from Ohio, a battleground state crucial to the outcome of all Presidential elections, where Democrats have attempted to bolster their own registered voters by allowing men and women who haven't voted in two-years to remain registered.
Republicans have long argued that by allowing these inactive voters to remain on the registrations that either voter who is now deceased, or those who haven't voted at all are somehow mysteriously showing as Democratic votes in allegations of voter fraud or election manipulation.
The decision was a 5 to 4 vote, with every Conservative Justice voting in favor of the measure, and the four liberal judges voting against it.
The Democratic Party has attempted to suggest that the Republican Party is somehow trying to promote voter suppression for minorities, albeit that race card argument holds no merit, as the GOP simply wants to guarantee free and fair elections through ballot integrity and ensuring that no voter fraud is taking place.
SCOTUS Blog says of the case:
<blockquote>”The case arose when U.S. Navy veteran Larry Harmon went to his local polling place in Ohio to vote in 2015. Harmon learned that, although he had lived in the same place for more than 16 years, he had been removed from the voter rolls because he had not voted in 2009 and 2010 and then also had not responded – because he said he didn’t remember receiving it – to a notice that the state elections board had sent him in 2011 to confirm his eligibility.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Harmon and Ohio civil rights groups went to court, arguing that Ohio’s practice conflicted with two federal voting laws. The first law, the National Voter Registration Act, was enacted in 1993 to advance two goals: Making it easier for would-be voters to register while at the same time guaranteeing “accurate and current” registration lists. The second law, the 2002 Help America Vote Act, directed the states to maintain a system to cull ineligible voters from their lists. Congress indicated that states can remove voters “who have not responded to a notice and who have not voted in 2 consecutive” federal elections, but it added that “no registrant may be removed solely by reason of a failure to vote.”</blockquote>
In many states, voters who were registered up to four years prior and haven't turned out to vote in several years, even having been deceased for several of those years, mysteriously voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, raising suspicions of the GOP and the general public.
With the new SCOTUS ruling, those who haven't voted in a two-year period will have to register again, which is a three-minute process, in order to show they intend to vote.
Current Ohio Law already allows for this purging after two-years, but Democrats were trying to challenge the measure after they lost the 2016 Presidential election and in the process lost Ohio.
Ohio has long-since argued that it compares those who are registered to vote with a US Postal Service list of people who report their change of address forms, but Democrats have said that not everyone who moves informs the Postal Service.
I'm not sure about you, but <i>every law-abiding, tax-paying citizen I know< needs the US Postal Service to pay their utility bills or to have anything in their name whether that be a phone or a vehicle.
Today's ruling is reflective of posterity and liberty. Those who desire to vote will register annually or participate in local and state elections as well as four-year Presidential campaigns.
The state is simply asking for those who want to vote to confirm their eligibility, and that process should promote fair elections. If you confirm your eligibility or at minima appear to vote in every four-year election, you will remain registered forever. It's that simple.
There should never be a Presidential, city, or state election where either dead voters or illegal aliens are casting ballots, or where more people show up to vote in a district than were ever registered. It's 2018, this shouldn't happen.
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito stated that Ohio is in compliance with the 1993 National Voter Registration, and he along with the four Conservative Justices all agreed on this measure.
The fact that every liberal judge voted against this is suggestive of what the Democratic Party’s agenda is, and that they're uninterested in free and fair elections.
Unfortunately for the left, they lost.
We will now see free and fair elections in Ohio and other battleground states which promote similar policies.
“Combined with the two years of nonvoting before notice is sent, that makes a total of six years of nonvoting before removal,” Justice Alito wrote.
Civil Rights groups are of course condemning the decision, suggesting this is a racially motivated decision.
Kristen Clarke, President and Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, “With the midterm election season now underway, the court’s ruling demands heightened levels of vigilance as we anticipate that officials will read this ruling as a green light for loosely purging the registration rolls in their community.”
This decision won't purge anyone who isn't an active voter. This is completely untrue.
As all people, of every color, creed, and innuendo support the 45th President of the United States of America, and his successful policies; the Democratic Party’s only hope to win future elections is to play to the false claims of racial disparity.
President Trump is making America great again, and the results prove it.
This is a nation made up of people of every ethnicity and background, and all people who want to participate in our elections are free to do so as patriots have no skin color.
