For those interested in the truth (I'm sure you're not): http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/military.asp
And pointing out that you're a bigot isn't calling you names; it's making a reasonable assessment based on the totality of your posts -- most recent: That Democrats don't get the votes of working White people, as if only people of color without jobs vote for Democratic Party candidates.
.Obama for America v. Husted:… Plaintiffs seek a declaratory judgment, preliminary injunction, and permanent injunction prohibiting Defendants from implementing or enforcing the HB 224 and SB 295 changes to Ohio Rev. Code ? 3509.03, thereby restoring in-person absentee voting on the three days immediately preceding Election Day for all Ohio voters
Uh oh. I guess this isn't voter suppression either. Does anyone get to sue about this?
Source.But another aspect of this issue has come up of late, as Ari Berman flagged for us yesterday. County Boards of Elections around the state, are voting to open Early Voting locations after business hours and on weekends in Republican counties only, while limiting hours of operation from 8am to 5pm on weekdays only in Democratic-leaning counties.
The Johns (Boehner and Kasich) should be ashamed of their state and their party.
Ohio sets up one early-voting system for Republican counties, another for Democratic counties
Now, in heavily Democratic cities like Cleveland, Columbus, Akron and Toledo, early voting hours will be limited to 8 am until 5 pm on weekdays beginning on October 1, with no voting at night or during the weekend, when it’s most convenient for working people to vote. Republican election commissioners have blocked Democratic efforts to expand early voting hours in these counties, where the board of elections are split equally between Democratic and Republican members. Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted has broken the tie by intervening on behalf of his fellow Republicans.
‘I cannot create unequal access from one county board to another, and I must also keep in mind resources available to each county,” Husted said in explaining his decision to deny expanded early voting hours in heavily Democratic counties. Yet in solidly Republican counties like Warren and Butler, GOP election commissioners have approved expanded early voting hours on nights and weekends.
Pubbies, so convinced they're going to legitimatly lose, cheat.
I wonder where Omaha Beach went. He was so anxious to see the statute, but since it's been posted, he hasn't been back to the thread, though he has been on the forums.
"The Obama campaign scored a victory in Ohio Friday when a federal district judge blocked a measure in the swing state that restricted early voting.
The measure, passed by Ohio’s Republican-controlled legislature, ended early in-person voting for most people on the Friday evening before Election Day — a Tuesday — but allowed military and overseas voters to cast ballots until the Monday before the elections, if local election boards approved it."
