I'm a narrow 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has held up Ohio's "voter purge" laws, which allows the state to deregister voters if they fail to vote in 2 consecutive elections. Good news?

Yes because it purges those who
moved long ago and registered in another district/state pr even moved out of the country
Those who have died
The lazy ones who don't bother voting anymore
Or those who changed parties

This is true. They're notified and given a short form and given paid return address envelope. If you're not voting and you don't return the form you not serious about your right to vote.

I’m fine with it ONLY if they purge all voters in all districts that meet a certain criteria. No picking and choosing.

If they haven’t voted in 2 consecutive elections, they get sent a letter and then they have 4 years to notify the state of their status. Seems very fair to me. Still 6 years to get dead people to quit voting.

Neither good or bad, and the headline is not completely accurate. After not voting in two consecutive federal elections, the process requires the failure to return the warning notice AND not voting for another FOUR years before being removed. A waste if time and effort, but it is not unreasonable.

Wow! That’s not authoritarian. (Sarcasm)

I don’t care if you turn in a blank ballot, just show people that you’re actually participating.

Stupid & a waste of time, and can lead to people voting based on parties and familiar names

For what reason? To save ink on the sign in sheets?

Neither good nor bad.
It doesn't just remove them for non-participation, it removes them for non-participation and failure to respond to communications about confirming validity of information on file, or changing it.

It removes the listing because the listing is likely wrong. They can re-register at any time with up-to-date information.

I would agree with it if it was a longer time period. Five years of no voting would be better.

Yes. This isn’t out of the ordinary either. Every state does this routinely as people move, die, or quit voting.

This is by far the most aggressive law in the country though. Not sure if I disagree, but

Wrong. 6 other states have the same or more strict laws

No, bad ruling.
Not voting is respectively a part of voting.

Awe, id disagree. This seam to be both an undue birden and a punishment, for abstaining from voting.

Yes, but the systems don’t “talk” to each other.

So instead of cross communicating systems, they have chosen to put the burden on the tax payer? How cute...
