Ohio Elections Chief Sets New Early Voting Hours
Ohio’s elections chief has issued new early voting hours for the final days before Election Day following a federal judge’s order last week.
Voters in the battleground state will get a total of 18 hours to vote in person on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before presidential primaries and presidential and gubernatorial general elections.
Secretary of State Jon Husted on Tuesday directed Ohio’s 88 county elections boards to be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday; and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday for the major contests.
Husted also set hours on the final days for municipal, primary and special elections.
His directive follows a federal ruling in a 2012 lawsuit filed by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and Democrats.
