Just in time when Trump gets a “modest boost” in Ohio after the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, something funky happens.
If you exercise your right to vote, or even know just a little bit about politics, then you know that Ohio is a very necessary solution-it’s a “swing” state.

The “problem” with that is, if you don’t regularly exercise your right to vote…let’s say…you haven’t in the past 3 elections (but you just so happen to want to-this upcoming election in November) then it’s necessary you know that your name and voter registration information may have swung out of the election systems (period).
Given the technical name “purged,” the federal appeals court panel is hearing the case of the lawsuit filed by the ACLU, brought forth in an effort to get that ridiculousness purged. Just because someone hasn’t voted in the past 3 elections doesn’t mean they may not want to this election.
Reportedly, just last month, a federal judge rejected the lawsuit, asserting that Ohio’s “procedures” ensure the integrity of its election process.
Not sure if that means that if you are a some-a-time voter (rather than a consistent voter), your voter integrity is called to the carpet because you only show your face when essential, tight, controversial Dem-Repub races are at stake (i.e Bush, Obama and now: Trump), but there’s no reason to assume it means anything other than that-flat out.
Today, attorneys for Ohio’s ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) will stand before a 3-judge panel of the 6th Circuit U.S Court of Appeals to get this “purge” process overturned.
The lawsuit is referred to as “wasteful” by Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted who asserts the purge process has been used in Ohio for over 20 years and is in full compliance with the constitution and federal and state laws.
