According to the Columbus Dispatch, one out of every five voters in Ohio is ineligible to vote. The voter rolls are bloated with people who have died or moved. Unsurprisingly, Holder has no interest in cleaning up the voter rolls.
In two counties, the number of registered voters exceeds the voting age population. Wood County has 109 voters for every 100 eligible. Lawrence County has 104 for every 100. Out of 7.8 million voters, almost 1.6 million are inactive, meaning they haven’t voted in at least four years because they died or moved or something else.
Secretary of State John Hulsted wrote a letter to Eric Holder asking for a meeting to find a way to balance voting law and clean up the voter rolls. That was February 10th and Holder has yet to respond.
Holder is the one who was so concerned about the electoral process that he sued states over their laws requiring photo ID to vote. Apparently Holder believes minorities are unable to figure out how to acquire a photo ID. He seems to think they will be disenfranchised if they have to prove they are eligible to vote.
Holder has also sued or threatened states that attempted to clean up their voter rolls – Florida being a case in point.
In June, 2012, Holder moved to block Florida from cleaning up their voter rolls of dead people and non-citizens. Holder’s lawsuit warned against disenfranchising voters.
We wouldn’t want the dead and the non-citizens to be disenfranchised.
When the Dispatch called Holder’s office, they declined to comment.
