  • Another wasteful anti-election integrity lawsuit is rejected:

    A judge has rejected a lawsuit brought by voting rights groups that alleged Ohio’s process for purging election rolls is illegally removing eligible voters… Judge George Smith said Wednesday that Ohio’s procedures for maintaining voter registration rolls ensure the integrity of the election process.

     

    Secretary of State Jon Husted responded:

    While today’s ruling reaffirms that the process Ohio has used for over two decades is constitutional and in line with state and federal law, the best news is that we can put another wasteful lawsuit behind us and focus on the important work of running elections in Ohio.

  • Voter Registration Shaming: Canine Edition

    If you live in a swing state, you must constantly be vigilant and keep a watchful eye on what tries to pass as ‘official election mail’. Recently, a family in the Raleigh, North Carolina area received an envelope stating, “government documents enclosed” that pertained to their household’s voter registration. So they promptly opened it. Inside, they found a letter from the Voter Participation Center, with a downtown Raleigh address, noting that one family member -- Benicia -- was discovered to not be currently registered to vote. Further, the mailing stated that the entity “will be reviewing the North Carolina voter file in eight weeks to see” if Benicia submitted an application to register. There’s a big problem here (among others): Benicia was a border collie who has since deceased.

    This isn’t the first time that the Voter Participation Center has popped up with official-looking mailers trawling for new voters in the pet cemeteries of America. These kinds of groups purchase commercial databases and blend them with voter rolls to spot gaps. Is that fraud? Not really. Can it create opportunities for fraud? You better believe it! Some voter registration agencies develop ‘white lists’ to keep tabs on every residential address that could be used for voter registration; but the same cannot be said for eligible voters.

    Whether you live in the swingiest state in the nation or not, data-driven politicking can create issues like the one described above. If you receive any questionable mail posing as official election business, tell True the Vote.

    Congress Considers Docking IRS Chief’s Pay

    If you can’t impeach him, just don’t pay him! That’s the latest thinking on Capitol Hill regarding what is to be done with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. This week, Congressmen Ken Buck (R-CO) and Mark Sanford (R-SC) added an amendment to the 2017 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act to zero out the IRS Chief’s salary, effectively removing him from the job. You can help out here. Contact members of the U.S. House Appropriations Committee and show your support for the effort today.
