Voter advocates in Ohio are urging state lawmakers not to make any changes to the swing state's election law ahead of November. And that includes repealing an elections bill that makes sweeping revisions to the law.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's attorney general has rejected language that opponents of the state's new election law had wanted to use in their effort to have parts of the measure overturned.
The decision is a setback for opponents. They need Attorney General Mike DeWine's approval before they can begin gathering the roughly 231,000 valid signatures needed by Sept. 29 to suspend the parts of the law until voters can decide in 2012 whether to keep or repeal them.
