Ohio Judge Hands Down Landmark Ruling For Election Integrity!

One of the most ridiculous notions that has become widespread on the left is that requiring a photo ID to vote is somehow racist.

Democrats, leftists, and liberals, all want to paint a picture that somehow requiring photo ID to cast a ballot disproportionally affects minorities.

Aside from this being racist, it is also completely misplaced. Virtually everyone in this country, including legal non-residents, has an ID.

An Ohio judge recently upheld the photo ID requirement as a prerequisite for voting in the state and ruled that it is not overly burdensome to ask anyone to present an ID before voting. The Associated Press reports:

The judge wrote that voters have no constitutional right to a mail-in voting option — or, for that matter, early voting — at all.

He added that Ohio’s new schedule for obtaining and returning absentee ballots remains more generous than 30 other states.

He said the claim that limiting ballot drop boxes to a single location harmed voters was misplaced, because the 2023 law was the state’s first to even allow them.

Judge Donald Nugent struck down the claims of the Elias Law Group, which argued that military veterans, teachers, and retirees were unfairly affected by voter ID laws.


Of course, each of these groups is required to have valid ID as per their employment and to qualify for benefits. The reaction from conservative voters was overwhelmingly positive:

The Federalist explained:

Signed into law last year by Gov. Mike DeWine, HB 458 requires Ohioans to provide a valid “Ohio driver’s license, state identification card, or interim identification form issued by the registrar of motor vehicles or a deputy registrar,” a U.S. military ID card, or a U.S. passport or passport card, in order to vote.
