    Election trouble? What trouble? 

    Now that U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott in Cincinnati has stopped some voter registration challenge hearings in the state even as others continue, it makes Ohio an more perfect microcosm of America. Voters will be treated differently if they live in Medina and Cuyahoga counties (challenges blocked) than they are if they live in Summit County (challenge hearings were reported to be proceeding today). The Help America Vote Act is working just wonderfully. In some states there are strict interpretations (Ohio) for the use of provisional ballots and in others the procedure is more generous to the lost voter. And as the challenge ruling plays out in court, some Americans overseas are having trouble getting and casting their absentee ballots and Florida, in early voting, is, ``again struggling with questions about potential voting irregularities.'' There have been complaints about missing absentee ballots, accusations of voter suppression and worries about new touch-screen voting machines. And it's still five days until the election.
