Today’s story is the incredibly long lines to vote across Ohio. Unlike in 2008, early voting was limited to weekdays by Secretary of State Jon Husted. But thanks to a lawsuit by the Obama campaign, two weekend days were restored — yesterday and today — and the lines clearly demonstrate that Ohioans want (or need) to vote on the weekend.
Don’t like long lines to vote? Be sure to let your State Representative and State Senator know. The GOP is already promising to revisit Ohio’s early voting process during the lame duck legislative session later this month, and you can bet it won’t be to make it more available.
