Court Throws Out Frivolous Challenge to Ohio’s Voter ID Law

After that ridiculous farce of a stolen election in 2020, many states started to take action to secure their future elections from brazen cheating by the Democrats. One of those states was Ohio, which sensibly passed a Voter ID law in 2023. That immediately caused Democrats to run for their fainting couches, after which they filed a lawsuit to try to prevent Ohio from having fair elections.

Groups like the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, the Ohio Federation of Teachers, and the Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans all sued to try to stop the sensible Ohio Voter ID law from going into effect. Their argument was the same this time as it always is: black people are too stupid to get an ID, so it restricts their ability to vote if you require them to show ID.

The groups claimed in their lawsuit that the Voter ID law would “severely restrict Ohioans’ access to the polls – particularly those voters who are young, elderly, and black, as well as those serving in the military and others living abroad.”

The new Ohio law also limits the number of drop boxes to one per county, sets earlier deadlines for requesting and returning absentee ballots, and eliminates in-person voting on the Monday before an election day. Which is all the usual stuff that Democrats utilized to steal the 2020 election.

On Monday, a federal judge ruled that Ohio’s Voter ID law is constitutional under the First and Fourteenth Amendments. The judge says the leftist groups failed to show how requiring an ID places an undue burden on any voters, including black ones.

The judge wrote in his decision, “The changes brought about by HB 458 make rather minor changes to Ohio’s voting laws, none of which meaningfully impacts anyone’s ability to vote under Ohio’s generous voting laws.”
