    Blackwell: Let my Ohioans vote  

    J. Kenneth Blackwell, Ohio's Secretary of State, made a
    good call when he told the state's 88 county election boards to allow challenged voters to cast provisional ballots on Election Day. The Ohio Republican Party filed more than 35,000 registration challenges last week and even though it has begun to drop some of them, the action created a logjam of voter-eligibility hearings that might not end before Blackwell's 2006 run for governor (I'm sure all the challenged voters will remember this decision more generously than they will Blackwell's strict determination of where the lost or misplaced voter must vote - his precinct or no precinct).

    As almost everyone has noticed, this presidential election has become the most litigious in history - and it isn't even Election Day yet. Blackwell and Ohio are in the middle of it. No wonder everyone is watching and wondering if the state is the Florida of 2004.
