More on the developing situation in Ohio

According to Atrios, the situation in Ohio is not only worrisome, it may actually be in violation of overall federal law.

I would add the following comments from the most important document in the US, the constitution:
Amendment XV

Section 1.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

Section 2.
The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
and of course:

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
