This week, in a moving tribute to Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones - who did more than just listen to her Ohio constituents when they told her of their systematic disenfranchisement during the 2004 election - Congressman John Conyers brought the issue of election integrity to the Democratic National Convention saying, "Never again would we see justice left undone. Never again will votes go uncounted. Never again will the voice of the people be ignored."

Also this week, the New York Times published "No One Should Have to Stand in Line for 10 Hours to Vote," an editorial about the criminal voter suppression practiced in Ohio during the 2004 election.

Long lines, too few voting machines, voter intimidation, voting machine failures, voters purged from rolls - these are just some of a long list of problems encountered in Ohio on that day in November four years ago.
