The Supreme Court has refused to issue an order that would have cut back on early voting in Ohio.
The state asked the court to block lower court orders that directed the state to let individual counties decide if they want to permit early voting on the weekend and the Monday before the general election for all registered voters. The state wanted to permit it only for members of the U.S. military.
In a brief, one sentence order, the court said the application for a stay was addressed to Justice Elena Kagan, the circuit justice for that part of the country. She followed the usual practice of referring it to the full court, which then declined to take up the case.
