Husted's voter-address plan is under scrutiny
State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) calls it a "trojan horse" that violates Federal Motor Voter laws


 
In The Region:
Secretary of State Jon Husted last week issued a directive to boards of election on maintaining voter records. WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia reports that the move is being met with skepticism from at least one state legislator.
Federal law requires voter rolls to be checked against the National Change of Address database every two years, with anyone who’s moved being contacted by mail to update their voter registration address. The new directive allows voters to make the updates online for the first time.

But it also requires boards of elections to contact voters who have not voted in two years, asking them to confirm by mail that they’re still registered. 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde, a Kent Democrat, has been critical of the Republican secretary of state’s efforts to update addresses in the past, and calls this latest move a “trojan horse.” She says the federal Motor Voter Law explicitly prohibits purging voters just for not voting.

Listener Comments:

Perhaps you should have checked the WKSU archives rather than trusting the word of a Democrat State Rep with an axe to grind.

Here's the link to the story YOU GUYS posted on August 9, 2012 concerning the Husted's new online change of address tool for Ohio voters.

The new directive allows voters to make the updates online for the first time.

Ahem!!!

You might want to do some fact checking before making such an outrageous and uninformed claim.

Secretary of State Husted rolled out the "Online Change of Address Tool for Ohio Voters" in early AUGUST of LAST YEAR.

Perhaps next time you should check the WKSU archives rather than just trusting a Democrat State Rep who comes to you with an obvious agenda.

Here's the link to the story YOUR TEAM published concerning Secretary of State Husted's new online change of address tool for Ohio's voters... when it rolled out back on August 9, 2012.
