Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is trying to protect the rights of voters by introducing new legislation.
“The Save Voters Act” defends Americans against voter purges and protects their constitutional rights.
This comes after the Supreme Court ruled that states are allowed to remove voters from rolls.
A lawsuit was filed against the Ohio Secretary of State over flagging registered voters after they’d missed one election.
Voters were then sent a notification in the mail asking them to confirm their eligibility.
If they don’t respond and don’t vote in the next two elections, they are then removed from the voter rolls, even if they are still eligible.
The Save Voters Act will amend the National Voter Registration Act to say that people are still eligible unless they move or pass away.
