Ohio secretary of state must verify registrations

COLUMBUS -- A federal judge has ordered Ohio's top elections official to verify the identity of newly registered voters.

A U.S. District Court judge in Columbus ruled Thursday that Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner must perform verification required by the Help American Vote Act. That includes matching a new registrant's information with information in databases maintained by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or the Social Security Administration.
