States that Are At Risk
USA Today in its report listed a bunch of states that could be states to watch for voting fraud and other problems at the polls.
The ACORN issue will still loom large on voter registration fraud and whether fraudulent votes would be cast in the States of Wisconsin, Nevada, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, Colorado, California, North Carolina, and other key battleground states
Virginia will also be a state to watch as the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) sued the Democratic Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia Tim Kaine for being underprepared on the voting turnout as there has been reports that there are not enough machines to handle the record turnout.
Also, states like Florida, Michigan, Colorado, Virginia, and West Virginia who have switched over old for new voting equipment in order to comply with the Help America Vote Act could be high risk states to watch too for voting fraud and irregularities.
The USA Today report also said that states like Ohio, Texas, Arizona, South Carolina, Utah and Kentucky are high risk for problems as they are scrambling to find poll workers in some counties which could disrupt the election.
