State Representative Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) released the following statement on the U.S. district court decision permanently restoring the last three days of early voting. Secretary Husted was ordered to set hours for the final three days of voting in all counties and reverse the illegal cuts he made back in February of this year:


“As we have been telling Secretary Husted for the past two years, the legislature has not succeeded in any of its many attempts to cut off the last three days of early voting—it ends on Monday before the election. End of story. I am happy that a court has once again protected the rights of Ohio’s voters, and I urge Secretary Husted to accept this ruling and move on.”
