High Court Delays Start of Early Voting in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP): Early voting won't start in Ohio until next week, following an order from a divided U.S. Supreme Court.
 
Voters had been slated to cast an early ballots beginning Tuesday for the November election. But in a 5-4 vote, the justices on Monday granted a request from state officials to delay a judge's ruling that lengthened the swing state's early voting schedule.
 
Early voting will now start Oct. 7.
 
A U.S. District judge had temporarily blocked a state law trimming early voting and ordered Ohio's elections chief to set additional times that included evening hours. His ruling had moved the start of voting to Tuesday. It came in a lawsuit brought by civil rights groups and others.
 
Ohioans also can vote absentee by mail or in person before Election Day.
