Ohio Voter ID LawAs has been the case for the upcoming presidential election, the battleground states figure prominently for both President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney. Ohio has been a hotbed of political activity of late, with the civil rights group Advancement Project helping to get a “wrong precinct” law struck down. Now the organization is celebrating another victory in favor of voting rights, after the Supreme Court allowed early voting for not only military members, but all residents of the state.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit joined the chorus of voices from Obama’s reelection campaign and other like-minded groups that a lower court ruling that looked to stop early voting didn’t have legal ground. For Ohio, the early voting period will take place in the three days before the general election date of November 6.

A panel of three judges at the Court of Appeals essentially ruled that, “While there is a compelling reason to provide more opportunities for military voters to cast their ballots, there is no corresponding satisfactory reason to prevent nonmilitary voters from casting their ballots as well.”

Voter disenfranchisement and other seemingly insidious tactics fueled by divisive GOP members looking to bar certain segments of the population from voting have been part of the conversation the past few weeks. This latest movement proves without doubt that the fight for voters’ rights is nearing an end but far from over.
