The Ohio ACLU has filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing Ohio's removal of registered voters from the rolls because they choose not to vote is a "powerful tool of voter suppression."
Ohio's system first raises questions when people have failed to vote for two years. It terminates their registration if they don't respond or vote over the next four years.
Ohio ACLU Legal Director Freda Levenson says the state is violating the National Voter Registration Act. She adds that when voters are purged, they aren’t notified until they are turned away at the polls.
