(Some) Florida early voters win reprieve

Some Florida voters can take their time voting this year. A law that cuts early-voting days to 8 from 12 has been blocked in five counties covered by the Voting Rights Act, the Associated Press reports.

"In sum, Florida is left with nothing to rebut either the testimony of the defendants' witnesses or the common-sense judgment that a dramatic reduction in the form of voting that is disproportionately used by African-Americans would make it materially more difficult for some minority voters to cast a ballot," states the ruling issued by a three-judge panel.

An Ohio law cutting three early voting days is also in court.
