The high court decided against Ohio Republican-backed law to restrict early voting during the first weekend of November
Ohio voters who want to cast their ballots the weekend before Election Day will face no restrictions. The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday decided against issuing an order that would have ended the early voting period before the first weekend in November, NBC News reported.

Ohio Secretary of State John Husted refused to enforce the appellate court decision, but the U.S. Supreme Court came down with a one-line decision against the Republican-backed effort to limit early voting.

Both presidential candidates plan to visit Northeast Ohio next week
Kent officials are remaining tight-lipped about President Barack Obama's planned visit next week. Kent Safety Director William Lillich said city officials were contacted by the president's administration Wednesday about the Democratic incumbent making a stop in the Tree City.
