'Voting rights groups want the state to pause the removals, noting that thousands of eligible voters are at risk of having their voter registrations canceled.The fight in Ohio underscores how mass voter removals ―voter purges ― are now a major frontier in battles over voter suppression in the United States. At least 17 million people have had their voter registrations canceled since the 2016 election, according to one study by the Brennan Center for Justice (it’s unclear how many of those cancellations were legitimate). Ohio has already canceled 265,000 voter registrations this year. Federal law requires states to have a general, nondiscriminatory program to remove ineligible voters from their rolls. The law also states that registrants can’t be removed “solely” because they haven’t voted. Any Ohioan erroneously removed from the rolls can register to vote until Oct. 7, 2019.'

From Common Cause: you and I have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to permanently stop partisan gerrymandering in every state. And this week, we got POWERFUL evidence of how effective our strategy can be.

After the Supreme Court's disastrous ruling in Rucho v. Common Cause this past June, political insiders were feeling newly emboldened to manipulate district maps for their own gain -- "packing and cracking" voters, and shutting out the competition.

But just this week, we turned the tide in a major way. After months of litigation, we won our North Carolina lawsuit, Common Cause v. Lewis -- forcing GOP lawmakers to redraw their gerrymandered state legislative maps in time for the 2020 elections.

This is our biggest win against gerrymandering since the Supreme Court shamefully refused to address the problem in the federal courts. And, it's proof that our state-by-state work to END gerrymandering can still get results.

But we can't stop here. We're also laying the groundwork to place multiple anti-gerrymandering state measures on the 2020 ballot -- one of our most effective tactics from 2018 that we have no choice but to ramp up again.

Frankly, we can only sustain this intense level of action if generous supporters like you step up in a sustainable, reliable way that ensures we have the resources -- day-in and day-out -- to end gerrymandering of congressional and state legislative districts.

That's why common Cause is asking today if you'll join a special group of Common Cause members and become a Guardian for Democracy. With a small monthly gift of $10, $15, or $25, you'll help ensure we have the resources we need to keep fighting through the next round of redistricting in 2021 -- and make sure every state has fair maps that give everyone a voice.

Will you step up today and support our fight for fair maps in all 50 states,

Yes, I want to end gerrymandering for good! Sign me up as a Guardian for Democracy >>
