I'm gonna go with just "news". I don't think Ohio is being unreasonable, but I do think that it will skew voting rolls unfairly in state that's politically important. It also serves to highlight how screwy our voting system is. I understand why we need to vote for congressmen by district, but so long as you have a valid Ohio ID why can't you vote WITHOUT having to register for a senatorial candidate anywhere in the state? Or for a presidential candidate anywhere in the country? And don't say "technical challenges" either. It would take about 5% of the computer power in Fort Meade to monitor voting for a couple days every couple years.
