"COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Democrat John Kerry is asking county elections officials to allow his witnesses to inspect the 92,000 ballots cast in Ohio in
which no vote for president was recorded, a Kerry lawyer said Sunday night.
The request is one of 11 the Kerry campaign made in a letter sent over the weekend to Ohio's 88 county boards of election, which will begin
recounting presidential ballots this week.
"We're trying to increase the transparency of the election process," said Donald McTigue, the lawyer handling the recount for the Kerry campaign.
But he added that several requests - such as using independent experts to check election equipment, "are trying to push the edge of envelope."
Two minor presidential candidates who received 0.30 percent of the votes in last month's election requested and paid for the recount, claiming that
the election was full of irregularities that need to be addressed.
President Bush, a Republican, beat the Massachusetts senator by about 119,000 votes in Ohio on Election Day. Ohio's 20 electoral votes, which will be
cast on Monday, put Bush over the top in the race."
