URGENT - Supreme Court upholds Ohio method of removing names from voter rolls

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Ohio's method of removing names from its voter rolls does not violate federal law.The decision was 5-4.The law allows the state to send address confirmation notices to voters who have not engaged in voter activity for two years. If a voter returns the notice through prepaid mail, or responds through the Internet, the information is updated. If the notice is ignored and the voter fails to update a registration over the next four years, the registration is canceled.
