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.

The dumocrats will do anything to make sure they can vote more than once. You need a photo ID to get in the DNC convention, but they don't feel you need one to vote. I was born and raised a democrat, I am so ashamed of them and their socialistic views, the redistribution going on, and the health care bill we had to pass to read. I hope O'bama looses in a land slide, and the American wins.
