Just in from The Hill: Supreme Court allowing early voting in Ohio

We all know that Ohio is a battleground state for the presidential election, and it looks like it’s heating up even more now.

President Barack Obama visited my undergraduate alma mater, Kent State University, and Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney also made an appearance in Northeast Ohio recently.

Despite Ohio Republicans’ efforts to block early voting three days before Election Day, the Supreme Court upheld a lower-court ruling that said early voting must be made available to all Ohioans, not just military personnel, according to a report in The Hill.

This election is going to be a pivotal one for the transportation construction industry and the future of the nation’s economic health so opening up voting early in Ohio will certainly have a real impact on the election.
