“We will be able to search through those records this election to determine if any provisional ballots should be counted,” said Butler County elections deputy director Eric Corbin.
In all 43,822 voters have been purged since 2011 in Butler and Warren counties, but those who were purged for simply not voting will be eligible to vote in this election, according to a divided 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruling this past Wednesday.
Voting rights groups sought an emergency motion from the court, and the decision overturns in part an Oct. 10 ruling by a federal judge that said those voters had not been illegally purged from the state’s rolls, according to the Associated Press.
Election Day is Nov. 6.
