COLUMBUS, Ohio — The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s appeal to suppress Ohio voters’ access to the polls by eliminating the final three days of early voting in the state.
The decision comes after a long, expensive legal battle in which Husted targeted elections board members who stood up to him.
“With the future of the middle class on the line, it is important that Ohioans have every opportunity to vote,” said OCSEA member Janice Miller. “I applaud the Supreme Court for rejecting Secretary Husted’s shady tactics to prevent our voices from being heard.”
During the three days before the election, Ohioans can vote 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3; 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5.
