Ohio Republicans limited early voting the weekend before the election only to military members. This afternoon a federal judge ruled that all Ohio voters will now be able to vote early, in-person, through Monday, November 5th:
On balance, the right of Ohio voters to vote in person during the last three days prior to Election Day - a right previously conferred to all voters by the state - outweighs the state's interest in setting the 6 p.m. Friday deadline. The burden on Ohio voters' right to participate in the national and statewide election is great, as evidenced by the statistical analysis offered by Plaintiffs and not disputed by Defendants.
This is a huge victory for voters across the state, as an estimated 93,000 people voted during this same time period during the last presidential election.
