Vote Challengers; Poll Watchers

It is an outrage that people would stoop to such a thing here in Cincinnati. Dayton was to be free of it, at least organized by the GOP, but now they will. There is nothing stopping some idiot from doing trying this on their own, even though people are supposed to be registered before hand. I would not be surprised if we don't see this kind of thing from some crackpot around the city. The Observer reports on the trouble Ohio is going to be having. That trouble will not be from people trying to double vote, but instead from those trying to suppress the vote in the name of prevent double voters.

What I want to know, are the GOP putting poll watchers in every location? Will be asking in my precinct who the watchers are. I may wander by some other locations and see if there are watchers stationed out in Anderson Township.

The GOP has dropped some challenges to registrations, but the headline is misleading, of course.

Jesse Taylor of Pandagon chimes in with a lament on the disenfranchisement the GOP is angling towards.

  1. WHAT AUTHORITY DO THESE PEOPLE HAVE TO CHALLENGE MY VOTE. WILL THEY CONFRONT ME OR DO THEY CHALLENGE MY VOTE WITH THE ELECTION OFFICIALS. THIS IS THE MOST BLATANT VOTER INTIMIDATION. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD EXPECT IN AFGHANISTAN.
