It’s not too early to worry about how election night 2004 will go – according to a St. Louis Congressman. Congressman Lacy Clay calls this year the most important election year in his lifetime. Clay contends there haven’t been enough improvements made by the St. Louis Election Board since the disaster of 2000, when some registered voters were denied ballots, other non-registered voters cast ballots, polls stayed open past the official closing time and some phantom voters dropped ballots in the box. Clay says Governor Bob Holden’s office hasn’t moved quickly enough to address the problem. Clay wants to do away with the “inactive voter” lists, which he says has been used to deny too many people the right to vote.
