As there is no good reason not to allow any eligible citizen to vote on those days, since workers have to be there anyway to let the military vote, the Obama campaign sued to reinstate civilian voters' right to vote on those three days too. The campaign is in no way advocating that we don't allow soldiers to vote on those days.
Of course, Republicans blew up, claiming that "Obama campaign sues to restrict military voting in Ohio". On Fox News, a "news" presenter said “If President Obama gets his way, the special voting rights of some of America’s finest will be eliminated. The campaign is suing to keep members of the military from having extra time to cast their ballots in one key battlegound state.” Even Romney himself released a statement saying:
"President Obama's lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state's early voting period is an outrage. The brave men and women of our military make tremendous sacrifices to protect and defend our freedoms, and we should do everything we can to protect their fundamental right to vote. I stand with the fifteen military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I'm entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I'll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them."Romney's statement is willfully ignorant of the true goal of Obama's suit, which would in no way affect soldiers' ability to vote. Romney dishonestly implies that Obama is trying to undermine that ability.
