Ohio Secretary Of State Calls Early Voting “Un-American”
Jon Husted spoke at a Toledo symposium against recent court decisions that restored early voting. The Toledo Blade reports:
Mr. Husted spoke of a recent federal court decision that he claimed intruded on Ohio’s ability to run its own elections and called it an “un-American approach to voting” — an opinion not shared by many who attended the symposium.
“It’s the job of the federal courts to enforce the Constitution; that includes the right to vote,” said Daniel Tokaji, a professor at the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law who was a panelist at the symposium, after the secretary’s comments. “…We should be doing everything we can to improve access to eligible voters.”Click here for reuse options!
