Ohio: Sec/State Bruner must verifiy new resgistrations

AP reports: A federal judge on Thursday ordered Ohio's top elections official to verify the identity of newly registered voters by matching them with other government documents.

U.S. District Judge George C. Smith in Columbus ruled that Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner must perform verification required by the Help America Vote Act. That includes matching new registrants' information against information in databases maintained by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or the Social Security Administration.

The order was the result of a lawsuit the Ohio Republican Party filed against Brunner, a Democrat. ...

Brunner also was ordered to establish a process by which Ohio's 88 county election boards can access information generated by the checks. -- Ohio Secretary Of State Must Verify Registrations - KYPost.com
