Court Ruling Returns Purged Voters to Rolls in Ohio

CINCINNATI, Ohio (24-7 News)--Voters who were recently purged from Ohio's rolls will be allowed to cast ballots in next week's election.  

A federal appeals court ruled in favor of voter-rights groups Wednesday in ordering thousands of people to be kept on county election rolls.  

Another federal judge decided earlier this month that the state's process of booting voters who had not cast ballots for six years or longer was legal.

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted indicated he would not fight the order, so close to the upcoming election. 

Voting-rights groups had argued that removing that many voters from the rolls would significantly affect election results.
