Obama sues to restrict military voting...
There's nothing in this lawsuit seeking to restrict military voting. Nothing will change for them either way.
The campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party contend the law unfairly ends in-person voting for most Ohioans three days earlier than it does for military and overseas voters.
Attorneys for the Democrats argue such "disparate" treatment is unconstitutional, and all voters should be able to vote on those days.
Obama for America's lawsuit comes after a series of election law changes cleared the state's Republican-controlled Legislature and Republican Gov. John Kasich signed them.
Before the changes, local boards of election had the discretion to set their own early, in-person voting hours on the days before the election. People were allowed up until Monday before the Tuesday election to vote in person. Weekend voting varied among the state's 88 counties.
With the changes, most Ohioans now have until the Friday evening before the Tuesday election to cast a ballot in person. But military voters can continue to vote in person until Monday.
Democrats contend the legislative changes to the in-person, early-voting deadlines resulted in "arbitrary and inequitable" treatment of similarly situated voters.
Second, the lawsuit is only seeking to restore the 3 day period for all citizens, not just the military
