ACLU Appeals Voter Purge Ruling, Granted Quicker Timeline for Case

Voting Rights

CINCINNATI—The ACLU of Ohio has been granted their request for a shortened timeline in an appeal to their challenge of Ohio’s process for purging voters. Under the expedited schedule, the ACLU and Demos, their partner in the litigation, will file briefs with the court on July 13, followed by oral arguments on July 27.

In June a federal judge ruled to uphold a process used by the Ohio Secretary of State to cancel voter registrations of people who had not voted in three federal election cycles. The ACLU and Demos are challenging this process, asserting that it punishes people for not voting.
