On her show Monday night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow talked with two Democratic election board members in Ohio who were suspended after they pushed to get extra voting hours on the weekends. Dennis Lieberman and Tom Ritchie faced an administrative hearing Monday for refusing to comply with an order from Secretary of State Jon Husted. They told Maddow that having voting hours on the weekends was crucial in their county, noting approximately one-third of those who voted early in the last election voted on a weekend.
