Ohio Democratic Chairman David Pepper says the process makes it harder to exercise voting rights and shouldn’t resume.
Writing for the majority in a 5-4 decision back in June, Justice Samuel Alito wrote that Ohio’s system to keep voter rolls up to date does not violate federal laws approved in 1993 and 2002 by Congress.
“We have no authority to second-guess Congress or to decide whether” Ohio’s law “is the ideal method for keeping its voting rolls up to date,” Alito wrote. “The only question before us is whether it violates federal law. It does not.”
