Appeals court upholds early voting in Ohio
ACLU- The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a federal court decision that restored early voting opportunities in Ohio in time for the midterm election. The American Civil Liberties Union challenged a state law and directives that have dramatically slashed early voting in Ohio. On September 4, a federal court granted the ACLU's motion for a preliminary injunction to halt the early voting cutbacks prior to full trial and in time for the midterm election; the state appealed, resulting in today's decision.
