In The Region:
A federal judge has ordered Ohio’s secretary of state to appear personally at a court hearing next week over the state’s rules banning in-person voting the weekend before the Nov. 6 election.

The judge decided last week that a law banning the early voting except for military voters and others living overseas is unconstitutional because it values one voter over others.

But the state is appealing. And Secretary of State Jon Husted will not allow counties to set voting hours during those three days until that’s resolved.

He says it would confuse voters if the judge’s ruling is overturned.And Husted’s spokesman, Matt McClellan, says the state still has plenty of time to sort things out.

“The secretary is confident the matter will be resolved well in advance of the start of voting to insure that voters, the boards are clear on what the hours are going to be and the issue will be resolved.

The Obama campaign is now asking the judge, Peter Economos, to enforce his order, and the judge has set a hearing for next Thursday.

Democrats have generally turned out in higher number for early voting than Republicans.
