Ohio “Golden Week” Early Voting Case Heading to #SCOTUS

The 6th Circuit panel that reversed a trial court order restoring Ohio’s “Golden Week” (when a voter could register to vote and early vote in the same trip) has on a 2-1 vote denied a requested stay of its order. The court offered no reasoning.

Before the stay issued, the plaintiffs’ attorney Marc Elias promised an emergency motion at the Supreme Court should the stay be denied.

So stay tuned. (I rate the chances the Court would grant such a stay, thereby restoring Golden Week for this election, to be quite small.)
