SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The new president of the NAACP says the
organization will have lawyers targeting 750 potentially
troublesome precincts around the nation on Election Day and plans
to address complaints about possible voter disenfranchisement
wherever they are made.
Benjamin Jealous, who took the helm of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored People on Sept. 15, said volunteer
lawyers are already addressing complaints about voters registration
Volunteer attorneys are now beginning to focus on the election
itself. Lawyers will be sent to 750 precincts around the country
where there has been a history of voter discrimination, Jealous
said after a news conference at the state NAACP convention.
