Fed Judge Stops Ohio From Limiting Early Voting

The State of Ohio has begun the appeal of a rul­ing against it on early vot­ing. State offi­cials intended to cut evening and week­end hours dur­ing which peo­ple could vote early. But a fed­eral judge blocked them from doing that, sid­ing with civil rights groups who said that dis­crim­i­nates against low income and minor­ity vot­ers who can’t take off to vote dur­ing work­ing hours. An appeals court will take the case as a rush job because under the judge’s order early vot­ing here would start Sep­tem­ber 30th.
