Taken from the  Cincinnati Enquirer, we have a story of organization by in and out of state groups to demand a purge of Ohio's voter rolls in a manner similar to that being performed in Florida.  What IS that little orange whatsit called anyways?

During a conference Saturday, a number of activists gathered at a summit organized by
"True the Vote", an organization that seeks to  "actively protect the rights of legitimate voters regardless of race or party affiliation."  Or translated, "keep brown people from voting."  The group is organizing poll watchers to challenge Democratic votes this November, as noted by News21.  At said conference, Judicial Watch, another conservative activist group, announced plans to sue the state of Ohio to demand a purge of voter rolls, which they claim has as many as 10% fraudulent registrations (730,000 out of 7.7 million in 2008).  Expect more fun on election day, make sure you are aware of the law as I rather doubt this cadre of observers will be fully abiding by it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
