Earlier today  the U.S. Supreme Court put on hold a district court injunction against changes to Ohio’s voting rules.  Splitting 5-4, the Court granted the order sought by the state, overturning the judgment of a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  No opinions accompanied the order.  A petition for rehearing en banc remains pending before the Sixth Circuit.

As a consequence of the Court’s order, recently enacted changes to Ohio’s voting rules will be in effect for the November elections.  Among the changes are a reduction in the in-person early voting period from 35 days before the election to 28 days, a reduction in weekend voting, and the elimination of nighttime early voting. Here are early reports from SCOTUSBlog, the Columbus Dispatch and the Post’s Robert Barnes.
