    But that's due in no small part to a petition drive putting Ohio HB 194 in statutory limbo until we vote in November. That bill would have cut early voting, limited the options open to counties to encourage early and absentee voting and generally tried to suppress voters rights.

    There's been some recent weirdness where the repub SOS Jon Husted has been quoted about getting the state legislature to repeal the law and pass some parts of it separately BEFORE the fall election, which would be confusing to all concerned. I have no idea whether anything like this was considered in the voter recall regs. It initially sounded like he was getting some pushback from the House, but now there's supposed to be a Senate bill introduced to do part of what he asked. It's an ugly mess which has the potential to embarrass us all yet again.
