Ohio Secretary Of State Questions Accommodating Black People

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, who decided to prohibit early voting on nights and weekends, is questioning whether or not hours should be adjusted to accommodate lower income and minority counties.

“We shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban — read African-American — voter-turnout machine”

At the center of the debate is restricting voting hours in heavily Democratic-leaning counties while having a different standard for Republican-leaning counties.

Husted, a Republican, scoffed at the “political hysteria” and “partisan controversy” surrounding the differing schedules, saying, “It has been in law and in tradition in Ohio that local Boards of Elections have established their own voting hours.”
