Supreme Court Won't Block Early Ohio Voting

October 16, 2012

The U.S. Supreme Court will not block early voting in Ohio, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

The Court declined to take up a case pushed by Republicans to settle a dispute over early voting in the closely contested state.

President Obama’s campaign and Ohio Democrats sued the state over changes to a law that took away early voting in the three days prior to Election Day for most people — with the exception of military personnel or Ohioans living abroad.

 

A federal appeals court had earlier reinstated the voting, but the Ohio Secretary of State appealed that ruling to the Supreme Court.

"This action from the highest court in the land marks the end of the road in our fight to ensure open voting this year for all Ohioans, including military, veterans, and overseas voters," said Bob Bauer, the Obama campaign's general counsel, in a statement. "We now turn our full attention to educating Ohio voters on when and how they can vote along with presenting the clear choice they face when selecting their next president.”
