Ohio’s Secretary of State is removing more than 200,000 voter registrations thought to be improperly on the voter rolls.  But advocates for voters insist there are thousands who should not be removed.

Last week, voting rights activists said about 4,000 voters were wrongly on a list of 235,000 registrations provided by counties that were set to be removed or “purged” from the rolls next month. But Ohio’s top election official says that’s not true, and in fact more people are now active voters. Here's why those names aren’t being removed from the list.
