Early voting in Ohio gets green light from Supreme Court

If you're a voter in the swing state of Ohio, you've just gotten an additional three days to cast your ballot.

A one-sentence ruling from the United States Supreme Court gave the go-ahead for Ohio polls to allow early voting in person beginning on Saturday before the election.

The debate over early voting in Ohio was challenged by Republicans who said they wanted to fend off voter fraud. President Obama's campaign and other Democrats in the battleground state said blocking early voting would cause problems for minority and low-income voters.

    I sure hope Obama messes up on the debate tonight. Maybe he will say something funny or get confused. If would be even better if he lost his temper. That would rule.

    I don't dislike him that much. He seems to be far more caring than Romney. It just seems change would be good.
