Missouri Election Officials Ward Off Ghosts of Elections Past

OCTOBER 24, 2006 - Posted at 3:38 p.m. CDT

 

ST. LOUIS, MO - Experts say conditions in Missouri are ripe for election-night debacles, but polling organizers say they are as prepared as ever.

A report by The Century Foundation predicts that Missouri is among a few other states that could face long lines and confusion.

The nonpartisan election research group believes the elimination of straight-ticket voting could make for some confusion and clogged lines at the polls.  So could the voter ID law passed by the legislature, then overturned.

St. Louis Republican elections director Scott Liendecker says training is key, and he believes the city and Missouri are ready.

The voting process in St. Louis has been scrutinized since 2000, when both Democrats and Republicans claimed wrongdoing by the other side.
