A deal has been struck between the Justice Department and the St. Louis Election Board to resolve problems that arose during the 2000 presidential election. The Election Board has promised to get rid of the controversial “inactive voter” list and use computers to allow election judges to handle voting discrepancies quickly. The inactive voter list contains the names of people on voter registration cards returned as undeliverable by the postoffice. The Justice Department has agreed to drop a federal lawsuit, because of the deal.
