You should go read this whole report at The Nation about how Republicans are manipulating the rules to keep Democratic and African-American voters from the polls in Ohio:

Now, in heavily Democratic cities like Cleveland, Columbus, Akron and Toledo, early voting hours will be limited to 8 am until 5 pm on weekdays beginning on October 1, with no voting at night or during the weekend, when it’s most convenient for working people to vote. Republican election commissioners have blocked Democratic efforts to expand early voting hours in these counties, where the board of elections are split equally between Democratic and Republican members. Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted has broken the tie by intervening on behalf of his fellow Republicans.

It's plain as day: Republicans are changing the rules so that Republicans have more favorable voting conditions. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: This is about as un-American as you can get .
