Ohio Tightens Voter Rolls, Removes Non-Citizens Ahead Of 2024 Election

In a bid to ensure the integrity of its voter rolls, Ohio has taken decisive action to remove individuals ineligible to vote, including illegal aliens, ahead of the 2024 election cycle.

According to a report by Fox News, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose (R) disclosed the findings of a recent review on Tuesday, revealing that over 100 individuals who were not American citizens had been registered to vote. Utilizing data from the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Ohio’s Public Integrity Division uncovered that at least 137 individuals were registered to vote despite not meeting the citizenship requirement.

In response to these discoveries, LaRose’s office issued a statement outlining the process for addressing these registrations: “These individuals will receive at least two written notices from the Secretary of State’s office asking them to confirm their citizenship status or cancel their registration. Failure to respond to these notices will result in removal of the registration from the voter rolls by the county boards of elections.”

Highlighting the complexities of the issue, LaRose emphasized that some of these registrations may have stemmed from genuine misunderstandings rather than malicious intent: “It’s important to recognize that some of these registrations may be the result of an honest mistake. These may be well-meaning people trying to pursue the American dream, and communication barriers sometimes result in a registration form being submitted in error.”

In an effort to bolster its verification processes, LaRose’s office has reached out to the Biden Administration, requesting access to federal citizenship databases, including those maintained by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Social Security Administration.

Ohio’s proactive measures underscore the growing concerns surrounding both mass migration and voter fraud, issues that have taken center stage in the lead-up to the November election. While the Democratic Party is often associated with advocating for more lenient immigration policies, critics argue that such measures could potentially enable voter fraud. Moreover, the lack of comprehensive action against voter fraud, particularly in the wake of the 2020 election, has fueled ongoing debates surrounding election integrity.
