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 including West Virginia. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule soon on a lawsuit filed against Ohio’s secretary of state over the practice of flagging registered voters after they’ve missed one federal general election. They get a mailed notification asking them to confirm their address. If they don’t respond and don’t vote in the next two general elections, they could be purged from voter rolls.
