(11/22/10): Hunter Sues Demanding that 849 Votes be Counted
The Hunter Campaign sues the Board of Election demanding that 849 votes be counted.
CINCINNATI, OHIO - NOVEMBER 22, 2010 - The Hunter Campaign sues the
Board of Election demanding that 849 votes be counted. These 849
citizens voted at the right location. The Board of Elections continues
to consolidate precincts in the same building to cut cost. However,
the poll workers were not directing the voters to the correct precinct
table. "This is a Board of Election error not a voter error. There is
nothing more important than an American citizens vote. This is a basic
fundamental right that separates our country from Iraq," Christopher
Smitherman, president of the Cincinnati NAACP says.
The Board of Election is trying to save money by combining three and
four precincts in the same building. This must be combined with
excellent training for poll workers to direct American citizens to the
right table. "Judge Susan Dlott of the U.S. District Court will decide
before 9:00 AM tomorrow if the Board of Elections can certify that
Williams won by 23 votes. It is wrong for the Board to certify an
election that involved their own errors. There is too much history on
the line," Smitherman said.
