The U.S. District Court hearing the Ohio ballot access case has moved the hearing date, from January 6, to January 9, at 2:30 p.m., in Columbus. The case is Libertarian Party of Ohio v Husted. The issue is whether the state can implement the new ballot access barriers for the 2014 election. They were passed in November 2013. Generally when states create new ballot access barriers that close to an election, the state delays the implementation.
