Lawsuit filed by Obama campaign
This just in from Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner:
Brunner received notification five minutes before the close of polls that the Obama campaign had filed an action in federal court in Cleveland to keep polling locations in Cuyahoga, Clermont and Franklin counties open until 9 p.m.
The campaign withdrew the Clermont County request.
A judge denied the Franklin County request.
The Cuyahoga County request was pared by the court down to 21 precincts in the City of Cleveland. The Secretary of State's office received Judge Tim Oliver's order at 9:05 p.m., after the time the Obama campaign asked for polls to remain open - 9:00 p.m.
Polls closed in Cuyahoga County at the scheduled time of 7:30 p.m. The board undertook the necessary efforts to reopen the 21 polls until 9 p.m.
Boards have also begun to submit results as they were directed with the closing of Sandusky County polls at 9 p.m.
