The Democratic board of elections members who were removed from their positions by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted in August have sued him in federal court, asking to be reinstated.
The lawsuit comes ahead of a Sept. 11 deadline that Husted set for the Montgomery County Democratic Party to send him the names of two new Democrats to serve on the board. The lawsuit asks for that process to be put on hold until their lawsuit can be resolved.
The dispute developed when the two Democratic members of the four-member board in Montgomery County, Dennis Lieberman and Tom Ritchie Sr., voted to allow for weekend early voting hours in the county.
