Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Ohio’s Election Chief Appeals Early Vote Ruling
Ohio’s election chief is appealing a ruling by a federal court that reinstates the final three early voting days in the battleground state.
Secretary of State Jon Husted said Tuesday he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to make the final decision on whether the state Legislature or federal courts should set Ohio election laws.
Husted called Friday’s decision by a federal appeals court “an unprecedented intrusion” into how states run elections.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated early voting on the three days before Election Day, returning discretion to local boards of elections.
President Barack Obama’s campaign and Democrats had sued Husted and Ohio’s attorney general over part of a law cutting off early voting for most residents on the Friday evening before a Tuesday election.
