Ohio Elections Chief Sets New Early Voting Hours
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has issued new early voting hours for the final days before Election Day following a federal judge's order last week.
Voters will have a total of 18 hours to vote in person on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before presidential primaries and presidential and gubernatorial general elections. Husted has directed Ohio's 88 county boards of election to be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday; and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday for the major contests. Husted also set hours on the final days for municipal, primary and special elections. His directive follows a federal ruling in a 2012 lawsuit filed by President Obama's re-election campaign and Democrats.
