The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the back and forth on early voting hours for the November 4th election has come to an end. The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals voided its September decision and the decision of U.S. District Court Judge Peter Economus which restored early voting hours that had been eliminated by a new state law.
As such, the voting schedule that was put in place after the U.S. Supreme Court intervened in the case will stand through November 4th. The schedule includes 28 days of early voting beginning on October 7th.
The party that brought the lawsuit, the ACLU, is not ready to hang up its spurs and go home. The group plans to continue with the case in hopes of affecting future elections. The Plain Dealer quotes ACLU spokeswoman Kim Schuette,
“We’re moving forward on our side and this case will continue forward within a few months. We are totally behind why we brought up the lawsuit in the first place.”
