Ohio Implements Voter Roll Purge, Removes Non-Citizen Registrations

In an effort to uphold the sanctity of its electoral process, Ohio has initiated steps to purge its voter rolls of ineligible individuals, including illegal aliens, ahead of the highly anticipated 2024 election.

According to a report from Fox News, Ohio’s Secretary of State, Frank LaRose (R-Ohio), unveiled the results of a recent review on Tuesday, revealing that more than 100 individuals who were not U.S. citizens had been erroneously registered to vote. Drawing on data from the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Ohio’s Public Integrity Division identified at least 137 cases of voter registration that did not meet the citizenship criteria.

Responding to these findings, LaRose’s office outlined the protocol for addressing such registrations: “These individuals will receive at least two written notices from the Secretary of State’s office asking them to confirm their citizenship status or cancel their registration. Failure to respond to these notices will result in removal of the registration from the voter rolls by the county boards of elections.”

Emphasizing the potential for inadvertent errors in the registration process, LaRose stated, “It’s important to recognize that some of these registrations may be the result of an honest mistake. These may be well-meaning people trying to pursue the American dream, and communication barriers sometimes result in a registration form being submitted in error.”

In a bid to enhance its verification mechanisms, LaRose’s office has formally requested access to federal citizenship databases from the Biden Administration. These databases include records maintained by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Social Security Administration.

Ohio’s proactive measures come amid heightened concerns over both mass migration and voter fraud, issues that have become focal points leading up to the November election.

While critics often associate the Democratic Party with advocating for more liberal immigration policies, skeptics argue that such policies may inadvertently facilitate instances of voter fraud. Moreover, the persistent lack of comprehensive action against voter fraud, particularly following the 2020 election, continues to fuel debates surrounding the integrity of the electoral process.
