“Relic of Jim Crow Era”: Ari Berman on Supreme Court’s Decision to Uphold Ohio’s Voter Purge

The Supreme Court has ruled 5 to 4 to uphold Ohio’s aggressive purging of voters from the rolls. The ruling means that states can remove people from voter rolls if they miss a few elections and then fail to respond to notices from election officials. One survey found nearly 150,000 people were removed from the voting rolls in recent years in Ohio’s three largest counties alone. Critics say the court’s decision is yet another victory for conservatives trying to restrict voting rights. DN! speaks with Ari Berman, senior writer at Mother Jones and a reporting fellow at The Nation Institute. His latest article is headlined “The Supreme Court Is Helping Republicans Kill a Key Voting Rights Law.”
