While the GOP in Utah is demanding recounts in three races the state has to figure out how to do those recounts. If there is any doubt as to how the state is leaning you only need to listen to the Lt. Gov.'s spokesman, Joe Demma, who says "The area we see the most susceptibility to need a recount are the paper ballots." / A Grand Jury may explore nine issues with one race in Boyd Co. Kentucky where 530 more votes were cast than voters who voted. / Wherever the elections are close this fall, they'll most likely be scrutinized by armies of lawyers. By setting those January 2006 deadlines for various reforms, "Congress designed it this way so we would have 2006 be our 'get experience' year," says Doug Lewis, head of the nonprofit Election Center, which trains election officials. Then everything will be smoothed out in time for the 2008 presidential election. Or that's the idea, anyway.(USNews)...
