There has been a lot of controversy regarding Ohio's early voting practices lately. In 2008, the state allowed citizens to vote for the president on weekdays and weekends before election day, but this year that time frame will be more limited.

Democrats say this is a direct attack on their party, as left-leaning minorities and lower-income citizens often utilized early voting in 2008, while Republicans say the limitations are more resourceful and cost effective. 

At the center of this battle is the Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, who is currently being sued by Obama for America as a result of these early voting directives.
