Clogging the voting lines

Increasingly, there is growing concern among Democratic circles that Republicans in Ohio will try to jam up voting centers by aggressively challenging registered voters. The thinking is that in Kerry-leaning precincts, Republicans designated as "official challengers" will argue that many voters should have had their names purged from the rolls because they had become 'Inactive" because they skipped voting in recent prior elections.

Besides the obvious concern about denying legal voters, a big concern that this will create enormous delays and long lines - long enough to cause would-be voters to give up before they cast their ballots.

Republican denials sound very hollow.
