Husted: No In-Person Early Voting On Weekend Before Election

Ohio's elections chief says early voting will not be allowed at county elections boards on the weekend before the Nov. 8 election. Secretary of State Jon Husted has issued an advisory saying voters who want to cast an absentee ballot in person before Election Day will have to do it at their local elections office by 6 p.m. on Nov. 4. A group of Democratic lawmakers had asked the Republican Husted to lengthen early voting because the Friday cutoff is part of an election law that's now on hold. But Husted says the early voting deadline also was in another new law that will be taking effect before the election.
