Why would Ohio be opposed to election overhaul measures?
unless unfair election practices were used to defeat them?

"In Republican-governed Ohio, where the 2004 presidential election was marked by complaints of unfair election practices, four election-overhaul measures backed by Democratic-leaning groups were on the ballot, but all were defeated. One of the failed items would have taken redistricting powers away from legislators."

Who indeed?

Well, this brings me to the question I had last year about Ohio,
Did the balloting accurately reflect the will of the voters?
and assuming that it didn't, Was the inaccuracy intentional?

Diebold, the company that makes most of the voting machines in the country, is based in Dayton, IIRC. You know Diebold...the owner pledged to deliver Ohio for Bush in the last election. THAT Diebold.
