Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is going to the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal a Friday decision by a federal appeals court here that restored early in-person voting on the final three days before the election.
"This is an unprecedented intrusion by the federal courts into how states run elections, and because of its impact on all 50 states as to who and how elections will be in run in America, we are asking the Supreme Court to step in and allow Ohioans to run Ohio elections,'' the Republican secretary of state said in a written statement.
Tuesday is the last day Ohioans can register to vote in the Nov. 6 election; and county boards of elections will be open until 9 p.m. for last-minute registrants.
Printable registration forms are available on all county boards of elections websites in southwest Ohio. They are also available at public libraries. They must be postmarked by today if sent in by mail, or delivered in person to the boards of elections.
Here are the websites and board addresses in southwest Ohio:
