Ohio vote challenges expected

by on December 5th, 2004


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Two major challenges are expected to unfold Monday when Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell certifies the state’s final presidential election results, declaring President Bush the winner by about 119,000 votes.

Lawyers representing voters upset about problems at the polls plan to contest the results with the Ohio Supreme Court, citing documented cases of long lines, a shortage of machines and a pattern of problems in predominantly black neighborhoods.
