Five Republicans sued election officials in an effort to prevent ballots from being accepted if a voter votes in the wrong precinct.
Attorney General Tom Miller said that Iowans could vote in the right county, but in the wrong precinct and still have their vote counted. Another problem is that voters are now required to mark off a citizenship box.
The Republicans claim that if this type of voting occurs it would not only be unlawful it would also increase voting irregularities and delay the results of the election.
This lawsuit involves provisional ballot. These ballots are used when the voter is not registered. The lawsuit asks for an immediate hearing and an order to stop out-of-precinct ballots from being accepted.
The Republicans in Iowa also claim that Chet Culver and Tom Miller have conducted the election in a partisan manner.
Chet Culver, the Secretary of State of Iowa, has been accused of accepting registration forms from voters who did not mark a box confirming U.S. citizenship.
Miller told election officials to accept registration forms of 364 Iowans who registered, but did not mark the box in regards to citizenship.
We all saw the results of the 2000 American election. This time, I'm personally going to fight back in the only way that I can, with a blog that documents as many news reports about Democrat fraud as I can.
