The government has announced an effort to ensure that all is on the up-and-up on election day and that no one may interfere with your lawful right to cast a ballot. To that end in South Carolina, the U-S Justice Department has appointed assistant U-S attorney Barbara Bowens as the District Election Officer for the District of South Carolina. Bowens will be on duty while the polls are open November 6. She can be reached by the public at the following telephone numbers: 803/929-3052 or 803/212-8261. The FBI on election day will have special agents available in each field office and resident agency throughout the country to receive allegations of election fraud and other election abuses. The local FBI field officer can be reached by the public at 803/214-5630. Complaints about ballot access problems or discrimination can be made directly to the Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section in Washington at 1-800/253-3931 or 202/307-2767.
