Six states under fire for blocking voters

Ian Urbina of The New York Times reports that elections officials removed or blocked tens of thousands of eligible voters from voter registration rolls in at least six swing states and that elections workers misused Social Security databases. The actions, revealed in a Times review of state and Social Security records, appear to violate federal law. Although no one believes elections officials and workers intentionally barred voters or acted in connection with any political party, the discrepancy has already led to legal action in Michigan, Florida and Ohio.
