Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting Privileges

Who would think, even if he won the lawsuit, that this would be a move worth making from a public-relations standpoint? Oh, yeah, right…

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.” 

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so.
