In light of the Supreme Court's rejection of his early voting appeal, Secretary of State Jon Husted has issued a directive to all Ohio Boards of Election setting uniform early voting hours for the weekend before the Nov. 6th election.
The hours are:
* Saturday, November 3, 2012 – 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
* Sunday, November 4, 2012 – 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m
* Monday, November 5, 2012 – 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Had he not issued the directive, boards of elections would have been able to set their own hours, resulting in no uniformity across the state.
The director also reminds boards that "any voter in line when that day’s hours for in-person absentee voting ends, may remain in line to apply for and receive an absentee ballot in person."
