Study Warns of Voter Suppression, Intimidation

A public policy group is warning that voters - especially among minorities - may face attempts at intimidation and suppression in an effort to sway the election.

A study released Friday by the National Voting Rights Institute and Demos points to several incidents during the 2004 election and warns that voters nationwide may face similar problems on Tuesday.

"We think it's a serious problem," said Brenda Wright, managing attorney at the National Voting Rights Institute, who co-authored the report.
