Pulaski Co: No Provisional Ballots in Satellite Precincts Nov. 2004

NCVV note: Not having provisional ballots in the Pulaksi Co. satellite precincts was a violation of
section 302 of the Help America Vote Act of 2002. But, who cares about breaking a federal law?

Pulaski County Without Provisional Ballots

Little Rock (AP) - Remote sites for early voting in Pulaski County do not have provisional ballots, so voters whose ballots are challenged have no way to vote.

Elections director Susan Inman says challenged voters will be directed to the county courthouse to cast disputed ballots until provisional ballots can be delivered to seven satellite voting locations. The ballots should be in place by Monday.

Early voting is underway statewide in advance of the November 2nd general election.

Inman blamed a state Supreme Court order September 23rd that halted printing of ballots statewide while the high court decided whether to order independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader's name stricken from the ballot.

The high court on October first overturned a lower court decision that had barred Nader from the ballot, clearing the way for counties to print ballots with his name on them.
