Voting Law Changes Upheld in Ohio

Ohio Voting Laws

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld recent changes in the Ohio voting laws.

The state of Ohio recently modified voting laws to decrease the eligibility for early voting. This change was challenged in court by the ACLU and the Voter’s League of Ohio. They claimed the cuts would unduly hamper some Ohio residents from participating in the upcoming presidential election.

But in the opinion of the Sixth Court: “The State of Ohio has already demonstrated that it is providing generous, reasonable, and and completely accessible voting opportunities across the board. The cuts proposed will in no wise endanger the rights of citizens to cast their vote, despite any perceived inconvenience.”
