Jurors are not allowed to vote early during trials, and are instead told to keep their minds open until the end. Voters have responsibilities just as great, and should not be casting ballots before the presidential debates are even held. In 2012, none of the presidential debates had yet occurred when the Ohio early voting period began. But Democrats see a big political advantage for their side with expansive early voting, and in late May they persuaded a federal court to order that Ohio reinstate its early voting period to allow voting in the presidential election to begin in early October. There is no constitutional right to early voting, and there is no entitlement for people to vote before the campaigns are over. Restoring Election Day to its national and historic significance would yield better results for our Nation.
