souls to the polls

U.S. Supreme Court refused to intervene in a request by Ohio Democrats to restore an extra week of early voting.

The Obama administration scored another voting rights win on Friday when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit said the key swing state of Ohio can't single out military voters for special treatment - a ruling that will re-open a three-day weekend voting period that's become known to black voters as the "souls to the polls" program.
