COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio board of elections is suggesting the state's election chief set early voting hours on the Saturday before the election.
Board members in Franklin County, which includes Columbus, agreed Monday to recommend that voting occur from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 3.
Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted) is accepting boards' recommendations in the midst of a dispute over early voting during the three days before Election Day.
Husted has appealed a lower court ruling that reinstates early voting on those days and returns discretion to the boards. He's also asked the U.S. Supreme Court to delay the ruling while it decides whether to take the case.
Also Monday, the Franklin County board referred three cases of suspected vote fraud to the county prosecutor.
