Over 650,000 new registrations have been turned into the state since January and Brunner's office say about 200,000 of them have mismatched data. But Brunner says there are multiple reasons why applications may be mismatched and said that a new process of verification could lead to disenfranchising voters. "If the Sixth Circuit's decision is allowed to stand, an untold number of legitimate voters in Ohio will be forced to re-establish
the bona fides of their vote before the county boards of elections, or they will stay home out of frustration or confusion," Brunner wrote in her appeal.
Meanwhile, the AP also reports that the FBI is investigating ACORN's role in voter registration fraud complaints in states across the nation. A law enforcement source told the wire service that the FBI is looking through the results of several raids on ACORN offices in various states to find out if there has been a "coordinated national scam."
