COLUMBUS- With Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announcing that another 276,000 Ohioans are now being targeted for removal from the voter rolls, Ohioans deserve to know whether Secretary of State-elect Frank LaRose will keep his word and fix Husted's aggressive voter purging process.
'Frank LaRose assured voters at the end of the campaign that he does not support the current purging process, which makes it harder for Ohioans to exercise their fundamental freedom to vote and must be put to an end,' said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. 'We hope Secretary LaRose will step in and remedy this last-minute, last-gasp maneuver by Husted. Automatic voter registration would help, which is another issue LaRose said he supported at the end of the campaign.'
