Allen County -
Any registered voter in Ohio can cast their ballot early, but an injunction granted today gives voters an extra three days to get their votes in early.
Today a federal judge in Ohio granted a request from President Obama's campaign to ignore a state law that cuts off early voting for most residents, except military personnel and Ohioans living overseas on the Friday before the election.
Obama's campaign and Democrats are suing Ohio's elections chief over the legality of the law. They argue everyone should have a chance to vote up until the election, giving them three extra days of early voting.
Allen County Board of Elections Director Mark Vernik says that rule hasn't changed in Allen County yet, which means early voting would end the Friday before the election.
Vernik says he likes having those extra three days to prepare for elections.
