President Barack Obama’s campaign joined the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party in a lawsuit against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Tuesday over his decision to not allow early voting during the three days before Election Day. The suit was filed in United States District Court (Southern District of Ohio) in Columbus.

Last week, Husted made the tie breaking vote for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on whether people could vote early on the weekend before Election Day.

In the past, Husted has said he will send all registered Ohio voters an absentee ballot application before the election in an effort to reduce the days of in-person early voting at county board of elections offices.

In essence, the republican Secretary of State, Jon Husted, he discovered that Obama won many Ohio precincts with a larger turnout of voters the three days prior to election....so he's stopping this option for Democratic voters.
