Several lawsuits working their ways through the courts have potential impacts for voting this year in swing-state Ohio.

Challenges about allegedly ineligible voters, the ability to vote in person on the final three days before the Nov. 6 election, and about how provisional ballots are counted are among the lawsuits in federal courts in Ohio.

Some critics have said that judges will have as much say as voters on the 2012 results.

With Ohio expected to be crucial for Republican Mitt Romney’s hopes of unseating President Barack Obama, the cases will be watched closely in the weeks ahead for any movement or rulings.
