Ohio was set to purge more than 200,000 voters, but 40,000 should not have been on the list

The state of Ohio had released names of 235,000 voters it planned to purge from voter rolls in September. Around 40,000 people, nearly 1 in 5 names on the list, shouldn’t have been on it, the state determined. And it only found out before anyone was actually turned away at a polling place largely because of volunteer sleuthing.
