In The Region:

Secretary of State Jon Husted has directed elections boards in all 88 Ohio counties to offer uniform hours for early, in-person voting. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is setting hours for early voting in all counties throughout the state.

"They will remain open the first three weeks of the election from 8 to 5.  They will, on the last two weeks before the election, be open from 8 to 7.  There will be a couple of exceptions to that.  That would be Tuesday October 9th when they are required by law to be open until 9 p.m. to accept voter registrations.  Along the way there is a holiday for Columbus Day in which all boards of elections will be closed.  And then the final Friday, statutorally, all boards will be closed at 6 p.m."

Husted says this a fair solution to solve a problem created when some election boards in Republican counties planned to hold late weeknight and weekend hours while other elections boards in Democratic counties could not.
