State Rep. Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) today sent a letter to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose urging him to reconsider and cancel the Sept. 6 voter purge which threatens the registration of some 235,610 Ohio voters—many of whom remain eligible to vote.

“For years, we’ve had Automated Voter Purging but not Automated Voter Registration,” wrote Sweeney. “I ask that you reconsider and cancel this voter purge so that my constituents – those who vote and those who don’t – are not struck from the rolls. Let’s get back on track with Automated Voter Registration and leave Automated Voter Purging in the past.”
