All signs indicate that Ohio Democrats are poised to flood the state's voting booths in record numbers on Nov. 2. Not surprisingly, a worried GOP is clutching for any kind of last-minute lifeline. As War Room noted yesterday, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell is up to some dirty tricks -- blatantly unethical if not illegal -- aimed at fortifying against the tsunami of new Democratic voter registrations.

Get-out-the-vote group America Coming Together is now circulating a petition to stop Blackwell's egregious attempts to obstruct the democratic process and tilt the election in his party's favor. You can sign the petition here.
