Route Fifty: The U.S. Supreme Court sided with Ohio in a case over whether or not the state has the right to cull voters from registers if they go too long without casting a ballot. The court’s narrow ruling is likely to have dramatic knock-on effects across the country. At least twelve other conservative states said they would follow Ohio’s lead if it prevailed, NBC reports.
Ohio aggressively trims its voter rolls by sending notices to people who have not voted in two years. Anyone who doesn’t respond or vote within the next four years is deregistered.
