Ohio Dems Sue to Keep Polls Open Late

From ONN:

The Ohio Democratic party is filing a lawsuit to keep polling locations in Cuyahoga County open late, ONN affiliate WEWS reported.

Four poling locations did not open until about 7 a.m. The Democrats are not happy that they did not open on time.

They are asking a judge to keep them open. The same thing happened in the May primary.

The Democrats want to give voters extra time to cast their ballots.

They are also concerned about the security of the paper ballots that had been cast when electronic machines weren't working Tuesday morning.

The Board of Elections is prepared to argue the case in front of judge.
