Hi we’re Columbus Dispatch reporters Rick Rouan and Doug Caruso. We’ve been looking into the voter purge here in Ohio ＆ found some voters were taken off the rolls in error. Democrats have criticized purges and the errors discovered in Ohio and other swing states as a form of voter suppression. AMA
I’m Rick Rouan and I’ve worked at The Columbus Dispatch since 2013, covering transportation, local government, and statewide politics and elections. I’ve written about the influence of campaign contributions in government and how Columbus tried to lure Amazon’s second headquarters. Since last summer, we’ve been tracking voter purges in Ohio.
And I’m Doug Caruso. I’m the Midwest investigations editor for the USA TODAY Network. Before moving into this job last year, I spent 24 years as a journalist at The Columbus Dispatch, reporting on local government and higher education, leading teams of reporters, and overseeing data-driven investigations. My recent work includes projects that examined the flood of arrest warrants in US courts and Columbus’ most troubled neighborhood. For this story, when we presented their most recent findings in an ongoing investigation of Ohio’s 2019 purges to Secretary of State Frank LaRose, he said it’s time for a change. We’d love to share what we found and explain the changes the LaRose said he wants to make.
