Ohio's Democrat elections chief has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to decide if the state must help counties verify voter eligibility.
Secretary of State Jennifer Bronner filed an appeal to the highest court, Thursday, after she was ordered to verity thoursands of new voter registrants.
"If the 6th Circuit's decision is allowed to stand, an untold number of legitimate voters in Ohio will be forced to re-establish the bona fides of their vote before the county boards of elections, or they will stay home out of frustration or confusion," Bronner said.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati made the decision in favor of the Ohio Republican Party, Tuesday, saying it would help election officials sort out mismatches and hopefully prevent voter fraud.
This year there were discrepancies with nearly one in three newly registered voters in Ohio.
That's 200,000 voters whose reported information did not match motor vehicle or social security records.
