[Politics] Ohio Voter Challenges

Partially on the grounds that the group America Coming Together (ACT) has been aiding the Democratic party in voter fraud -- the G.O.P. claims that ACT phone folks have been deliberately contacting Republican voters to give them incorrect polling location information -- the Ohio Republican party has been granted the right to challenge voters at the polls.

Never mind that even if their claims /are/ somehow true and ACT is giving out false polling information (which I don't really believe), the Republicans have done things like send out fliers on fake 'official' letterhead, stating that due to record voter turnout Election Day has been extended by one day; the fliers note that registered Republicans should report to their polling places on Tuesday, and registered Democratic voters on Wednesday. (Gee, I wonder which votes they wanted not to get counted?)

This election is one of the most hateful I've seen. I really hope there's a decisive victory tomorrow; I don't think I could cope with weeks and weeks of uncertainty and confusion and yet more hate as the election results get debated in the courts.
