Ohio lawmakers passed two restrictive Republican voting bills Wednesday night, raising the prospect that casting a ballot this fall could be much more difficult, especially for minority voters.
With Ohio remaining the key presidential swing state, the changes could also affect the 2016 election.
The state Democratic Party said immediately that it would sue in federal court to block the laws.
