Here's How Republicans Fix Elections in Ohio
Republicans are uncanny in their knack for making it difficult for Democrats to vote.
Republicans know how to steal elections
In Pennsylvania and Florida, new voter ID laws, authored by Republican controlled legislatures and signed into law by Republican governors, are aimed at disenfranchising elderly people and African Americans, who generally vote for Democrats. Now, in Ohio, the Republicans have come up with a new tactic. Early voting stations in the most heavily Democratic counties will be open only between the hours of eight and five pm on Mondays through Fridays, but in Republican counties the voting hours will be extended until eight pm weekdays and voting will be allowed on weekends as well.
The board of elections in the counties encompassing Cleveland, Akron, Columbus and Toledo, which vote heavily Democratic, are split evenly between Republicans and Democrats, and they became gridlocked over Democratic efforts to expand early voting hours. As a result, Jon Husted, the Republican Secretary of State, intervened and denied expanded early voting hours to these counties. Republican-heavy counties, however, were able to expand their voting hours. Such is democracy in action in Ohio.
