“Ohio Secretary Of States Threatens To Remove Democrats Over Weekend Voting Hours Rule”

Buzzfeed reports. As Ned Foley explained yesterday, SOS Husted’s decision for uniformity may have been a step in the right direction, but it is not clear that the best policy is to bar weekend voting.  Weekend voting helps people who work long hours during the week.  And if there is no weekend voting, in large jurisdictions in Ohio there may be very long lines to vote during the week—some people won’t be able to wait.

This is why we are seeing Democratic pushback over Husted’s equalization order.

UPDATE: The Buzzfeed report has now been updated to reflect the suspension of two Democratic election board members in Montgomery County, Ohio.
