National Briefing / OHIO

Supreme Court's vote is sought

October 17, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The state elections chief has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in a dispute over whether Ohio is required to do more to help counties verify voter eligibility.

Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, a Democrat, filed an appeal with the high court late Wednesday, her spokesman announced. She argues that the ruling would disenfranchise or discourage many voters and that Republican fears of fraud are unsubstantiated.

At least 200,000 newly registered voters have mismatched data, according to an initial review by Brunner's office.
