Democrats, Republicans Trade Charges on Voters

Democrats in Florida yesterday accused Republicans of already having a list of nearly 15,000 voters that Republican poll watchers will challenge on Election Day, while Democrats in Ohio won a court victory when a federal judge halted efforts by the state Republican Party to obtain hearings on challenges to thousands of voter registrations.
Miles Rapoport, president of Demos, a nonpartisan voting rights organization, yesterday encouraged the Justice Department to uphold the rights of all eligible voters and ensure that every vote will be counted.
