The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to get involved in a case involving planned activities by the Trump campaign at polling places in Ohio on Election Day.

The U.S. Justice Department says it will have more than 500 monitors and observers out Tuesday watching polling sites in 28 states. They'll be looking for any voting rights violations, such as whether voters are discriminated against because of their race or language.

"The bedrock of our democracy is the right to vote, and the Department of Justice works tirelessly to uphold that right, not only on Election Day, but every day," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Sunday that the Ohio Democratic Party has not demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits of its case. It granted the emergency stay sought by Trump in a brief order.
