DNC: Recall Could Have Florida-Style Problems

Democratic Party leaders are warning that the recall election against Governor Davis could result in Florida-style problems of disenfranchising poor and minority voters. The chairmen of the California Democratic Party and the Democratic National Committee told reporters that the consolidation of precincts in some counties could result in some voters not being able to get to their polling places.

Many counties, including Los Angeles County, the state´s most populous, are eliminating polling places to save money.

Alice Huffman, president of the California State Conference of the NAACP, says she wants the election delayed until November to give counties more time to prepare and voters more time to educate themselves.

Recall supporters say they expect no problems.
