Elections Redux

According to a story in the Columbus Dispatch (subscription required) this morning, a coalition of voter advocates led by the League of Women Voters of Ohio plan to file a suit in the Toledo federal district court. The suit alleges that Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, Gov. Taft, and their predecessors failed to ensure the right to vote in Ohio. The filers are calling it a "historic, nonpartisan lawsuit." A Blackwell spokesman stated that the suit was "misdirected," and foisted any possible blame upon county boards of election.

The suit seems to be all about the procedural aspects of voting and not any one election.
