Ohio Files Appeal to Supreme Court on Voter Registration Data
"This one's hot to steal the election for Obama,Wants Acorn Illegal Votes counted as legal !"

Ohio's Attorney General filed an emergency appeal to the U. S. Supreme Court late Wednesday night seeking to block a lower court decision that could cost many thousands of Ohio voters a chance to cast a regular ballot on Nov. 4.

The battleground state already has become the setting for a series of lawsuits over voter eligibility. About 660,000 new voters have registered since January with an edge to Democrats.

The filing on behalf of Democratic Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner contends that upholding a Tuesday decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit would create havoc on Election Day and cause many voters to cast "provisional" ballots that may or may not ultimately be tallied depending on judgments by local elections boards.

Ohio Republicans have been battling Brunner contending the state system for verifying voter registration information is difficult for local officials to use in gleaning lists of individuals whose information contains a discrepancy. Those voters could be challenged about their eligibility to cast a regular ballot Nov. 4 and receive a provisional ballot instead that would be counted only if a voter's eligibility later was established.


The Sixth Circuit on Tuesday had directed Brunner to give local elections officials ready and direct access by Friday to computerized lists of new voters whose registrations do not match state driver records or Social Security information. A 2002 federal law required states to create a statewide database of voter registration information and to verify new voter information by crossmatching it with the other public records.

Ohio counties do not have an easy way to view their mismatches in the current system, court testimony had shown.

Brunner had said adapting Ohio's voter registration system to accomplish that change would require a few days of work on software programming at a time when a surge of voter registrations also are arriving.

Yet her office had indicated it would comply.

She's something, isn't she? Quite the little partisan. The election will probably take months to be verified with the level of mass fraud. I hope she gets voted out of office at the first opportunity. She's a disgrace.
