The Supreme Court has handed Democrats a huge victory by refusing to block early voting in Ohio, which over 100,000 Ohioans took advantage of in 2008.
After the 2004 election saw long lines and widespread voter complaints, Ohio implemented early voting for three days before the election. This gave many Democratic-leaning voters a chance to cast a ballot over the weekend, infuriating Republicans.
As part of what can only be called the Republican War on Voting, Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted has been fighting to have early voting limited to veterans, who tend to vote Republican.
