I see problems on both sides of the fence.

I agree with the judge that there should not be inexperienced challengers trying to test the validity of registrations of people standing in line to vote. This is what elections laws, procedures and trained election workers are for. I question how and why a law to permit this was even passed.

OTOH, the article also states that the same judge halted legal challenges to registrations last week when mail could not be delivered to 35,000 addresses on the voter registration records. It was hypocritical of the judge to say, "does not indicate that the presence of additional challengers would serve Ohio's interest in preventing voter fraud better than would the system of election judges." on the issue of challengers at polling places when it was she, as an election judge, that halted the challenges in the courtroom.

I personally have a problem with all that has surfaced about double voters in Florida, New York, North and South Carolina as well. I can see how people can be double registered. That happens whenever someone moves since no one goes to cancel their registration in their previous precinct. When they actually identify that some of them have double voted though, I think it's time to hold them accountable under the law. These morons don't deserve to vote.

those 'registered' voters. It is the voters responsibility to make sure they are registered and done so correctly.

I had also heard of instances where Democrats were objecting to people checking regstration against the records when they came in to vote...that these people should be allowed to vote, anyway. Poppycock!
