SUPREME COURT-OHIO VOTER ROLLS
CINCINNATI -- Do you have to vote even if you don’t want to? Not doing so could put you on the path to losing your vote in some states. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule this month in a lawsuit filed against Ohio’s secretary of state over the practice of flagging registered voters after they’ve missed one federal general election. Supporters of the practice say it helps ensure voting integrity; opponents say it’s another measure aimed at suppressing minorities and low-income voters. By Dan Sewell and John Seewer.
