In a win for voters, a federal judge ruled yesterday to restore early voting hours that had previously been cut in Ohio in time for the November election. The ruling significantly increases early voting hours on evenings and multiple Sundays and restores "Golden Week," during which voters can register and vote on the same day.
Late last week, a Florida Circuit Court threw out the Congressional maps in Florida, drawn by the state legislature and adopted in 2012. The judge rejected the maps because they violated the Fair District Amendments to the state’s constitution, which were adopted by citizen initiative in 2010 to remove partisan influence from the redistricting process.
Great news: A federal court recently ruled to make it easier to vote in Ohio! And it gets better – the League of Women Voters of Ohio (LWVOH) is working hard to ensure that all Ohio voters are equipped with the information they need to vote.
