Election lawyers have been dispatched to ensure a fair election

President Obama’s reelection campaign, openly concerned that his supporters will be turned away from the polls, is offering legal help to voters who see problems.

The president today said in an interview that the campaign has enlisted an army of lawyers to clear hurdles away for his supporters, telling American Urban Radio Networks, “If people have problems voting, we can solve those problems. We’ve got lawyers all across the country.”

Urging supporters to vote early, as the president himself did in Chicago last week, he told black radio host April Ryan that voters should contact his campaign if they are prevented from voting.

“If you try to vote early and you see that problem, we’ve got time to fix it,” said the president.

Democrats have been worried that new election laws requiring voters to show identification are meant to block minorities and the poor at the polls. In Chicago, the president provided his license as identification before voting.

The only reported problem thus far came from North Carolina where voters were surprised when their votes for Mitt Romney were changed to President Obama by the voting machines.
