Jon Husted Keeps Trying to Eliminate Voting Rights, Keeps Losing

Chicago, IL -- The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit yesterday struck a blow against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and his plan to slash early voting hours and eliminate Sunday voting, affirming an earlier district court ruling that found Husted in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

"For the fifth time in the last two years a court has told John Husted that his attempts to slash the voting rights of Ohioans are unconstitutional? At this point NBC may have copyright claim against Husted for 'Biggest Loser,'" said Hari Sevugan, iVote spokesman. "It is because of Jon Husted's persistent desire to restrict their voting rights that Ohioans are going to add one more loss to his tally on November 4th."
In 2012 Jon Husted attempted to restrict early voting and was stopped by courts herehere and the by the Supreme Court of the Unites States here

A copy of this year's appellate ruling stopping Jon Husted from eliminating voting right  is available here. A lower court stopped Husted here.
