Early Voting Changes Go Before Federal Judge
A federal judge in Ohio plans to hear arguments on when voters can cast an early ballot in the presidential battleground state.

They’re also seeking to overturn a law that eliminated days when residents can both register to vote and cast an early ballot.
The groups contend the changes will make it difficult for residents to vote and will unfairly affect black voters. They want the judge Monday to block the law from being enforced during this fall’s election and want the secretary of state to issue a new schedule.
Republican backers of the measures say Ohioans still have plenty of time to vote.
