Ohio Must Restore Three Early Voting Days

By DMO Affiliate
A federal judge ordered Wednesday, Ohio, the quintessential swing state, must allow voters to cast in-person ballots on the final three days before an election. The order from a federal judge in Columbus, Ohio, comes in a long-running dispute over early voting days. President Barack Obama's re-election campaign and Democrats filed a lawsuit in 2012 against the state's elections chief over a 2011 Ohio law that cuts off in-person early voting for most residents three days before Election Day.The law makes an exception for military personnel and Ohio voters living overseas. Democrats claimed that was unequal treatment and that everyone should have the chance to vote on the final three days. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus agreed Wednesday and issued a permanent order calling for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted to set uniform hours on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before Election Day.
