Ohio Sued Over New Law that Requires Naturalized Citizens to Bring Naturalization Papers to Polling Place

Published on August 31, 2006, by in General.

On August 29, a group of naturalized citizens, and several organizations that support them, sued in U.S. District Court to overturn an Ohio law passed last year. That law requires naturalized citizens to bring their naturalization papers with them when they vote at the polls, to avoid a challenge. The lawsuit points out that most naturalized citizens keep their papers in a safety deposit box, that if they are lost, it takes over a year to replace them, along with a $200 fee. Also, the lawsuit wonders why Ohio won’t be satisfied with a U.S. passport, as proof of citizenship. The case is Boustani v Blackwell.

    What does Blackwell want? If you keep throwing acres of crap on voters like this, then they won’t vote.

    This is a Republican attempt to make it harder for potential Democratic voters to vote.
