Early Voting To Begin In Ohio Following Dispute

Ohioans can start casting ballots Tuesday in the fall election after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a dispute over the swing state's voting schedule.
Voters can pick their choices for the next governor along with other statewide officeholders in the Nov. 4 election. Also up for a vote are a number of legislative races and more than 1,600 local issues.
Ohioans can cast an absentee ballot by mail or in person.
The start of early voting had shifted amid a lawsuit over two election-related measures.
A federal judge temporarily blocked a Republican-backed law. His ruling lengthened the early voting schedule and moved the start of early voting to Sept. 30.
But a later ruling from the Supreme Court returned the start to Tuesday, following a request from state officials.
