OH Secretary of State Asks Supreme Court To Suppress Early Voting

You’d think a public official whose job is to supervise free and fair elections would be focused on ensuring that every eligible voter has a meaningful chance to vote and that every vote is counted as cast. Sadly, in Ohio, you’d be wrong.
Jon Husted, Ohio’s secretary of state, is making it his business to gum up the machinery of democracy in the Buckeye state. He’s been fighting for months to limit access to early voting, which helps tens of thousands of Ohioans with disabilities, or jobs that keep them busy during normal voting hours, participate in elections.

Poll: Little Bump for Republicans in Key Swing State Ohio

According to exclusive polling data, Mitt Romney received little to no post-convention “bump” following the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, last week. In Ohio, Obama’s previous lead over Romney of 45.3 percent to 44.4 percent has switched to a Romney lead of 46.8 percent to 43.7 percent. Although within the previous polls margin of error, the Republican convention appears to have given Romney a 2 point bump while taking 1 point from Obama. In the Senate race, before the Republican convention, Democrat Sherrod Brown held a narrow 43.6 percent to 41.4 percent lead over Republican Josh Mandel. Again, although within the margin of error, the post-convention poll gives Republican Mandel the advantage at 44.3 percent to 43.5 percent, representing a 3 point bump for Man del, while Brown’s take stayed basically constant.
