Supreme Court Upholds Voter Rights in Ohio

Issued an unsigned opinion blocking a GOP dirty trick. The court blocked:

a lower court order directing the Ohio Secretary of State– a Democrat– to update its voter registration database after information provided by some newly registered voters did not match up with Social Security and driver registration numbers.

The state Republican party had asked for enforcement of a temporary restraining order, but the justices ultimately denied that request.

This is a strong blow for democracy and voter rights.
