(Oct. 21) -- Eyewitness News has learned the Democratic National Committee plans a legal offensive on the voting process in Nevada. The party hired lawyers to watch each polling site for any problems on November 2nd. Republicans are questioning the move.
Voters can expect more activity at the polls in Clark County. The Democratic National Committee hired 240 lawyers to be stationed with poll watchers at each polling site. Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe says, "That's what we will have in Clark County. We will have 10,000 throughout the country, 2,000 in Florida. Our goal is to make sure there is no voter disenfranchisement."
McAuliffe stopped in Las Vegas on the campaign trail. He says each lawyer will have an identifying pin saying "Voter Rights Institute."
"They will be there to make sure that if anyone has an issue inside they can resolve it. We don't want anyone to leave the polling place until they have voted," McAuliffe said.
Clark County Republican Chairman Brian Scroggins counters, "We are not going to be having attorney's at every poll site. That seems to me a little intimidating for the voters." Scroggins says all of this lawyer preparation and talk has taken voters attention away from the real issues in the election. "We will gear up as we need to. If incidents come up we will gear up and do the things that we need to do to protect the voters of this state also."
But that does not include lawyers at each poll site. Republicans say they will not do anything differently than they did at the polls in 2002. What is different is the level of accusations.
Scroggins says, "To have an attorney at every poll site, obviously they are thinking that things won't turn out the way they want it to. So they are looking to make some sort of issue about it."
McAuliffe says, "Let me tell you we will be prepared if the Republicans try any of their shenanigans that they do."
Both parties say they want everyone to vote. You don't have to worry about any commotion at the voting booth. Partisan politics must stay outside away from the machines
Terry McAuliffe and Brian Scroggins both say we will know who is president on November 2nd. They also say that lawsuits will not be filed like after the 2000 election.
