Missouri | St. Louis Strengthens Security For Elections
From STL Today.com:
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said this morning that election and law enforcement officials will be on extra watch to make sure every eligible voter in the city is able to cast a ballot.
Slay said he wanted to avoid the “national embarrassment” of four years ago, when thousands of “inactive” voters were turned away from the polls.
The move is also designed to avoid another massive case of voter fraud that plagued the city in the 2000 election.

Thanks for signing in,
Now you can comment. (Click here should you choose to sign out.)
As you post your comment, please mind our simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. We also ask that you avoid the extensive use of profanity, racist terms (neither of which we consider civil or respectful), and other boorish language.
We reserve the right to delete any comment, and to prohibit you from commenting on this site, if we feel you have broached this policy. As a courtesy, we will first send you an email noting a violation so you understand the boundaries. This will occur only once, however, and should we ban you from our comment forums we expect that ban to be permanent.
We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner. The point of our comment threads is to provide a forum for spirited though civil and respectful discourse … it is not to provide a forum in which everyone will agree with your point of view.
If you can live by these rules, welcome aboard. If not, then we’re sorry it didn’t work out, and thanks for visiting The Command Post.
