Toledo Blade: ''Democrats fault voting process in Ohio''

"WASHINGTON - Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said yesterday that a study commissioned by Democrats of the election in Ohio last November showed that the system "failed the citizens of Ohio in 2004, and in particular failed African Americans, new registrants, younger voters, and voters in places using touch screen machines. The report claims:

●More than 1-in-4 Ohio voters had problems with voting, including waiting long lines;

●Two times as many black voters as white voters had problems. Blacks reported waiting an average of 52 minutes compared with 18 minutes for whites;

●Five times as many voters had identification questioned than there should have been, based on registration statistics."-from the story in today's Toledo Blade.
