COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama's campaign is urging the U.S. Supreme Court not to consider an appeal in a dispute over early voting in the presidential battleground state of Ohio.
A lower court had reinstated early voting on the three days before Election Day and returned discretion to local boards of elections.
Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted), a Republican, has appealed that ruling. He's also asked the Supreme Court to delay the lower court ruling while it decides whether to take the case.
Attorneys say the Obama campaign submitted a court filing Friday asking that the lower court's ruling stand.
Obama's campaign and Democrats sued Husted over the early voting law.
