Ohio appealing judge's decision on early voting



Published: Tue, September 4, 2012 @ 2:27 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Attorneys for the state are moving to appeal a federal judge’s decision to give all voters in the swing state the option of casting their ballot in person during the three days before Election Day.

A judge last week granted a request from President Barack Obama’s campaign as part of a lawsuit targeting a state law.

The law cuts off early voting for most residents on the Friday evening before a Tuesday election, except military personnel and Ohioans living overseas.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said today in a court filing he’s appealing to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.

Obama’s campaign and Democrats say everyone should have a chance to vote on those three days. The state contends many laws grant special voting accommodations for military members.
