DOJ and Election Day

United States Attorneys Offices across the United States are planning on "deploying an unprecedented number of federal personnel to monitor tomorrow’s midterm election, sending more that 500 federal observers and more than 350 Justice Department personnel to 69 jurisdictions in 22 states – more than double the total sent on election day in 2002, which was the previous record for a midterm election." (see here - although I could not get the actual press release to open). For example, in offices like the Middle District of Alabama, the U.S. Attorney issued a press release stating that "Assistant United States Attorney Kent Brunson will lead the efforts of her office in connection with the Justice Department’s nationwide Election Day Program for the upcoming November 7, 2006 general elections. AUSA Brunson has been appointed to serve as the District Election Officer for the Middle District of Alabama, and in that capacity is responsible for overseeing the District’s handling of complaints of election fraud and voting rights abuses in consultation with Justice Department Headquarters."
