Secretary of State Jon Husted has rescinded his order prohibiting boards of elections from preparing for early voting the weekend before Election Day.

But county boards of elections are still unsure what their next step will be.

Federal Judge Peter Economus has ordered Ohio to reinstate in-person weekend voting hours. The state has appealed and last week Husted told county boards NOT to set those hours until that’s resolved.

Kelly Pallante, the director of the Trumbull County Board of Elections, says that her office is waiting to evaluate the information it has, but it’s prepared for anything that may happen.

“Our board’s next regular meeting will be October 2, at 9:30 in the morning. And as of right now I don’t foresee our board members meeting before that time. So I’m sure that the last weekend voting will be on their agenda that day. But as of right now, we have no established hours for that Saturday, Sunday or Monday.”

Economus had ordered to appear in his court this coming Thursday to explain his earlier order to county boards.
