High Court Won't Block Early Voting in Ohio

The U.S. Supreme Court is siding with Democrats in refusing to block early voting in the battleground state of Ohio, the AP reports.

SCOTUSblog: "The ruling was a significant victory for President Obama and for Democrats, especially since they claimed that the shuttering of voting offices on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before election day would be likely to affect low income and minority voters -- many of whom may be expected to vote Democratic."

Rick Hasen: "This is quite a run in the courts for those fighting Republican legislative cutbacks on voting rights, at least in 2012.  And in that respect I have been surprised."
