succumbing to peer pressure

Saturday, October 23, 2004


Republican Party officials in Ohio took formal steps yesterday to place thousands of recruits inside polling places on Election Day to challenge the qualifications of voters they suspect are not eligible to cast ballots.


Ohio election officials said they had never seen so large a drive to prepare for Election Day challenges. They said they were scrambling yesterday to be ready for disruptions in the voting process as well as alarm and complaints among voters. Some officials said they worried that the challenges could discourage or even frighten others waiting to vote.

Voters - know your rights! If you are denied the right to vote because they don't believe you live in the county where you are registered, or for some other reason believe you are at the incorrect polling place, demand a provisional ballot! By law, they are required to provide you with a ballot to cast, then hold it until they can determine whether or not to legitimately count your vote. Most places are not going to volunteer this information, so know your rights!
