Ohio Does the Right Thing

Nice to have some good news to report.

The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled by a 4-3 vote that Ohio's early voting rules that allow new voters to register AND cast an absentee ballot on the same day are permissible. Previously, a voter needed to be registered for at least 30 days to cast such a ballot.

This should certainly help with some of the anticipated long lines that might be even longer this year, given the determined efforts of both parties in registering as many new voters as possible. It's hard to understand why the GOP filed suit against the state of Ohio for trying things to make life easier for voters.

You don't think they were hoping to disenfranchise some of these new voters, do you?
