Published: Tuesday August 29, 2006
Ohio officials will soon begin destroying the paper ballots from the
2004 presidential election despite objections from voter rights
groups, according to a story slated for Wednesday’s edition of The
New York Times.
“Soon after the 2004 presidential election, questions emerged about
how votes were tallied in Ohio, a battleground state that delivered
the presidency to George W. Bush,” Ian Urbina writes for the Times.
“Now, following a routine procedure, state officials are preparing to
destroy the paper ballots from the election,” writes Urbina.
