Report: Millions to be Blocked from Voting
According to a new report:
Millions of U.S. citizens, including a disproportionate number of black voters, will be blocked from voting in the Nov. 2 presidential election because of legal barriers, faulty procedures or dirty tricks, according to civil rights and legal experts.
From an earlier report on the 2000 election (same link):
The commission, in a report earlier this year, said that in Florida, where President Bush won a bitterly disputed election in 2000 by 537 votes, black voters had been 10 times more likely than non-black voters to have their ballots rejected and were often prevented from voting because their names were erroneously purged from registration lists.
Today, a new report has been released on the suppression of student votes. From the Project Democracy Press Release, received by e-mail:
