District Court Orders Restoration of Weekend Early Voting in Ohio

Have there been enough big election law decisions this week? Apparently not, as earlier today a federal district court in Ohio has held that a change in the Ohio Revised Code that ends in-person early voting the Friday before election day (for all voters other than overseas military personnel) is unconstitutional and issued an injunction ordering that such voting be allowed through the weekend. Here are the decision, local Ohio coverage, and (as usual) early analysis from Election Law Blog’s Rick Hasen. According to this report, Ohio Attorney General says he plans to appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
