Good news for Obama: Supreme Court refuses to limit early voting in Ohio!

The story is HERE:

The Supreme Court delivered a victory to President Obama’s reelection campaign Tuesday, saying it would not stay a lower court’s ruling that all voters–not just those in the military–be allowed to vote in the three days before the Nov. 6 election.

The court turned down Ohio’s petition without comment. There were no noted dissents to the decision.

A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit ruled that if Ohio is going to allow in-person voting for members of the military during the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before the election, it must open the process to all voters.

“While there is a compelling reason to provide more opportunities for military voters to cast their ballots, there is no corresponding satisfactory reason to prevent nonmilitary voters from casting their ballots as well,” the appeals court said.

  1. Vote early, vote often. Its the Democratic way.

  2. Neftali: Have you got any more tired old wingnut cliches?

    Perhaps you’d like me to trot out a few examples of voter fraud committed by Republicans.

    Meanwhile, I eagerly await your evidence of any instance in recent decades of a Democrat voting more than once in the same election.

    (Cue the crickets.)
