An Ohio GOP official believes the state’s early voting process should not accommodate African Americans.
Doug Priesse who sits on the board of elections for Franklin County voted against the weekend voting rules that were formerly used in the 2008 election.
"I guess I really actually feel we shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban — read African-American — voter-turnout machine," Doug Priesse told reporters. "Let's be fair and reasonable."
Priesse is also a chairman of the Franklin County Republican Party.
Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted regulated that all Ohio counties enable early voting Monday through Friday until 7 p.m. Early voting is permitted during the last two weeks before the election.
