Cinci Enq: Ohio voter fraud rare-Safeguards prevent 'Mickey Mouse' ballots.
Ohio voter fraud rare
Safeguards prevent 'Mickey Mouse' ballots
By Jon Craig jcraig@enquirer.com and The Associated Press October 14, 2008


COLUMBUS - Four days before the 2004 election, former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson warmed up Republicans for President Bush's visit here by warning the crowd of 20,000 that people had registered to vote as "Dick Tracy" and "Mary Poppins."

Did Tracy or Poppins show up to vote on Election Day? No.



With three weeks until Election Day, partisans on both sides are once again drumming up fears that the voting process in Ohio is tilted against their side. Republicans rail about an army of fake voters; Democrats say Republicans want to disqualify newly registered voters, who are expected to favor Barack Obama.

The evidence suggests both sides have little to fear.

A 2005 report by the League of Women Voters of Ohio and the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio, for example, found that of more than 9 million votes cast in the state's 2002 and 2004 general elections, there were four instances of ineligible people attempting to vote. The data were collected from interviews with all 88 county Boards of Election.

BTW there is a poll at the site: Poll: Do you fear voting fraud in Ohio?

1. isn't it funny... one of the few "voter fraud" cases they found was
Ann Coulter (THE Ann Coulter) lying about her residence ... and that they allowed her to do so ... with the Repukes' blessing of her voter fraud ...
