Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted asked county boards of elections to tell him what they want to do about in-person voting the final three days before the election, while Husted waits for a decision on whether the U.S. Supreme Court would hear his appeal of his ban on voting during that period.

The Reds and Dusty Baker have reached an agreement on a two-year contract extension through the 2014 season. They're making the formal announcement Monday afternoon at 3 during a press conference at Great American Ball Park.
"In Dusty's five seasons here he's taken us to the postseason twice and has proven he can lead our teams to championship-caliber play on the field," Reds CEO Bob Castellini said in the news release announcing the agreement. "He's the right manager to continue the building process that will take us deeper and deeper into the playoffs in the future."
