A fight over Ohio’s voting laws will take place tomorrow in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati. At issue is whether those new laws, which outline various rules for early and in person voting, are constitutional or whether they disenfranchise low income and minority Ohioans.
