Left-wing lawmakers in Ohio aren't giving up despite a recent court ruling allowing Trump observers at the polls.
The 2016 U.S. Election Day is less than 24 hours away, but Democratic lawmakers are continuing the fight to make sure GOP voter intimidation efforts are not allowed at the polls on Tuesday.
The battleground state of Ohio is always a deciding factor in presidential elections, and this year’s race is no exception. Currently, left-wing politicians are fighting to keep Republican voter intimidation efforts to a minimum. In the most recent developments, GOP judges in Ohio removed a court order that prohibited the Trump campaign from implementing questionable voter intimidation tactics planned for Election Day.

According to Think Progress, a federal judge in the state initially handed down a ruling that banned Trump’s team from “conspiring to intimidate, threaten, harass, or coerce voters on Election Day,” on Friday. However, that ruling was blocked by a panel of conservative judges on Sunday morning, with no explanation offered as to why the decision was overturned. In response, Democratic lawmakers requested that the Supreme Court restore the order to ban voter intimidation in Ohio on Sunday night, according to Politico.
The rulings are two of the latest developments in the ongoing efforts by the Democratic Party to prevent Republicans from allowing the Trump campaign’s planned voter intimidation strategies to keep people away from the polls.
