Thousands Of Ohio Voter Registrations Reinstated
Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose says more than 18 thousand inactive voter registrations have been reinstated after record-high participation in the 2020 election. 98 thousand inactive files were removed in scheduled post-election voter roll maintenance, compared with the over 115 thousand initially flagged. To drop off the purge list, a voter needed to take some qualifying action. That could include election-related activity, such as updating a registration, requesting an absentee ballot or voting, as well as visiting the BMV.
