Lawyers Brace For Election Challenges

Lawyers for Mitt Romney and Barack Obama will be heading to the polls tomorrow in droves, watching out for election problems.

They’re keeping an eye on what’s being called “the margin of litigation,” where the number of still-to-be-counted votes is greater than the winning margin, especially in decisive battleground states.

Provisional ballots in Ohio could be a problem, so could absentee ballots in Florida.

Guest:

  • Edward Foley, director of the election law program at Ohio State University.
