Secretary of State Jon Husted said Tuesday the perennial battleground state only has four duplicate registrations, down from more than 340,000 in January 2011. Ohio has more than 7.7 million voters.

Husted said accurate and up-to-date voter rolls make elections more secure and efficient.

Now if we can just have ALL voters show an ID to vote that also help with potential voter fraud.

Ohio has some stupid voting laws. Go through some trash cans or landfill and find a recent utility bill.

"Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, to announce his or her full name and current address and provide proof of the voter's identity.

The forms of identification that may be used by a voter who appears at a polling place to vote on an Election Day include:

"An original or copy of a current utility bill"

You don't need the original bill, a copy will be fine. It is very easy to make fake picture ID cards. According to Ohio law, an old utility bill from November or December 2012 is a "recent" form of voter ID.

"For Voter I.D. purposes "current" means the document was issued on a date WITHIN ONE YEAR immediately preceding the date of the election at which the voter seeks to vote, or has on it an expiration date which has not passed as of the date of the election in which the voter seeks to vote."

Now what are the democrats going to do to replace those "lost" votes?
