It’s hard to be Ohio Secretary of State. Doing your best to manipulate election results while attempting to maintain some sense of virtue can’t be easy.
But it seems Jennifer Brunner’s troubles aren’t over. The same woman castigated over last election’s Golden Week fiasco and a multitude of voter fraud cases now has found herself 44 years behind times.
Ohio appears to be violating a federal mandate by not automatically updating voter registrations when residents change the address on their driver’s licenses, according to the final report from two elections summits.
That makes it more difficult for counties and the state to maintain up-to-date voter-registration lists, contributing to the relatively high number of provisional ballots cast in Ohio and other problems, the report said.
Norden pointed out that the National Voting Rights Act of 1965 says that any change of address on a driver’s license shall serve as a notice to automatically update a voter’s registration, unless he or she says the change is not for voting purposes.
This makes me wonder one thing…
WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING OVER THERE?!?!
I’m sorry, Jennifer. I don’t mean to yell. But honestly, your job is to make sure Ohio’s elections are run properly. I’d imagine one of the highest priorities would be making sure the voting rolls aren’t obnoxiously inaccurate.
What are you doing instead?
Squat. Your lack of action is providing ample opportunity for double-votes, identity theft, and election fraud in general.
Secretary Brunner is running for the U.S. Senate. She’ll likely win the nomination and have all the cash she needs to face Rob Portman.
I just hope she runs on her record.
