"Running Elections in Cuyahoga County Next Year"

Ned Foley has this interesting commentary on the Moritz site. It begins: "Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State, is justified in seeking removal of all four members of the Cuyahoga County elections board, who ultimately hold responsibility for the egregious mismanagement of the voting process there in 2006 (which followed on the heels of serious failings that occurred in 2004). But Brunner needs quickly to put in place a new bipartisan board, two Democrats and two Republicans, who will be able to exercise all the normal responsibilities of the board in 2008, so that she herself--an elected Democrat--does not displace the board's authority for making all the local decisions that will arise regarding the casting and counting of ballots in Cuyahoga County in the upcoming presidential election."
