Purging US Voters

By a 5-4 decision, US Supreme Court Justice Alito reverses the 6th circuit and upholds Ohio's purging of infrequent voters. The state of Ohio has purged 2 million voters since 2011, more than any other state. Black voters 2x as likely as whites to be purged in state's largest counties.

This means it is OK to purge voters from the rolls if they skipped voting a couple of times. Apparently, casting your ballot is no longer a right, but a privilege. This is why GOP lawmakers collaborate with POTUS. They know voter suppression helps them to make elections neither free nor fair.

If you haven't voted in a while, the Supreme Court says states can purge you from their rolls.
