No more “Golden Week” early voting in Ohio

Good news on Cleveland.com:  
Appeals court says Ohio can scrap 'Golden Week': A federal appeals court panel ruled Tuesday that Ohio can shorten its early-voting period, handing a victory to Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted over Ohio Democrats who challenged the change. As cleveland.com's Robert Higgs explains, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel overturned a lower-court ruling that the state could not get rid of its first week of early voting – the so-called "Golden Week," during which Ohioans can register and vote early at the same time. Ohio Democratic Party chairman David Pepper indicated the party may appeal.
Who benefits from “Golden Week” except those looking for opportunities to stuff the ballot box? This ruling is at least a start to restore some integrity to Ohio voting.
