Election 2012: Early voting restored in Ohio
Economus had pointed out to them during an early hearing that Ohioans can cast ballots by other methods, in person on Election Day or by mail beginning 35 days before the election. Lawyers for the state also noted the multiple ways voters can cast a ballot this fall, including casting an early ballot in person on other days.
Before the law, local boards of elections previously set early voting hours on those three final days. And weekday hours and weekend voting varied among the state’s 88 counties.
Democrats estimated in their lawsuit that 93,000 people voted during the final three-day window before the 2008 election.
