Lawsuit Targets Blackwell as Elections Chief
Ohio activists say they don’t want Secretary of State Ken Blackwell overseeing November’s general election.
They’ve filed a civil-rights lawsuit claiming Blackwell deprived people of their voting rights during the 2004 presidential election. Specific accusations include: distributing fewer voting machines in black neighborhoods, purging voter registrations and disproportionately assigning provisional ballots to blacks.

A spokesman for the Ohio Democratic Party says it wants Blackwell to stop setting rules that affect his own campaign.
