The Supreme Court did rule yesterday on Ohio’s procedures for keeping the voting roles clean. Purging non-active voters is essential to fair elections. Some counties in Illinois and some states have more people on the voting roles than citizens. McLean County isn’t one of them.
That didn’t stop Nikita Richards from putting out #FakeNews:
Nobody in Ohio has been purged for not voting in 2 elections.
After not voting in two elections, a card is sent to the address on file asking the citizen to return the card. This verifies the desire to remain on the roles. That person is not removed until they fail to vote for the next FOUR years! That’s a total of SIX years Nikita.
Nikita Richards should have read the NBC story she linked along with her “media advisory” on Facebook: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/ohio-wins-supreme-court-fight-over-voter-registration-n873226
Illinois has early voting, absentee voting, and same day registration. Nobody is being stopped from voting in McLean County if they really want to, that includes the military. Connect Transit even has a free bus for transportation!
The last person McLean County needs running the County Clerk’s office is somebody who makes up their own facts! Debates should be interesting – especially if Nikita plans to use voter suppression as the reason she is running.

Will “media” actually correct her allegations? Anyone? Anyone?
It will be fun to see supports Nikita’s Fake News.
The ACLU joined in the #FakeNews – of course to raise money. They claimed a voter can be removed for missing ONE election in Ohio. That is a flat out LIE. People are waking up to the lies, forget the November blue wave. From an email:
