A federal judge in the swing state of Ohio ordered on Friday that polling places be open three days before the Nov. 6 election. The ruling, the sixth of its kind this year, acted against new voting rules imposed by a Republican-dominated state legislature and revived early voting on the weekend and Monday before Election Day. During that time in 2008, 93,000 Ohio voters cast their ballots.
