Ohio to appeal ruling on early voting

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio’s election chief said Tuesday that he will appeal a ruling by a federal court that reinstates the final three early voting days in the battleground state. Secretary of State Jon Husted is asking the US Supreme Court to decide whether the state Legislature or federal courts should set Ohio election laws.

Husted called Friday’s decision by the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals ‘‘an unprecedented intrusion’’ into how states run elections. The court returned discretion to set hours on the final three days to local boards of elections.
