US Supreme Court to hear Ohio voter registration case

US Supreme Court to hear Ohio voter registration caseThe US Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear a case over voting rights that is part of a long-running dispute between Republicans and Democrats. The court said it would consider an appeal from the Republican-controlled state of Ohio after a lower court blocked a policy to purge voter-registration lists of people who do not vote regularly, saying it violated federal law. The state’s officials argue that canceling the registration of voters who had appeared inactive for six years helped keep voting rolls current and accurate.
