register to vote redAugust 29, 2013

“The God Devine Refinement Allah” is the latest of Ohio VIP’s challenged voters at the Hamilton County Board of Elections (BOE). Registered to vote on October 3, 2012, Mr. Allah was accepted by the Hamilton County BOE and entered onto the voter rolls at an address which does not exist.

At the Hamilton County BOE meeting on Tuesday 8/27, Mary Siegel, who challenged Mr. Allah, put it on the Board to explain how this registration could have been accepted. “Obviously the system isn’t working,” said Siegel. “The name alone should have been an alert that this registration is a fake.” The Board is in the process of reviewing this case.

In our opinion, Ohio’s voter registration system is broken! Secretary of State Husted’s office is in the process of implementing an online voter registration that will electronically verify voter data and help prevent bogus and erroneous registrations. But what about now?

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles, in an attempt to be in compliance with the 1993 Motor Voter Laws, has been erroneously changing voter registrations to the voter’s business address without the voter’s consent. Mr.Tim Burke, Chairman of the Hamilton County BOE demanded the Secretary of State look into the matter.

Ohio VIP will continue to keep the pressure on the Secretary of State and our elected officials to improve the integrity of the registration process. Per Siegel, “We have to stop the garbage going into the system in order to make any head way in cleaning up Ohio’s voter rolls.”
