Voter Purges Could Cause Florida-like Presidential Recounts

Steven Rosenfeld, AlterNet - October 9, 2008.

If the November vote is close, key swing states that have been illegally rejecting voters could become recount battlegrounds like Florida.

With less than four weeks to go before the 2008 presidential vote, new practices in key swing states to update voter rolls are coming under fire for mistakes that could involve rejecting tens of thousands of legitimate voters, suggesting that close vote counts in these states could lead to legal fights echoing Florida's presidential recount in 2000.
