U.S. Justice Department will monitor Miami-Dade early voting

The U.S. Justice Department will monitor early voting in Miami-Dade County to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, according to the agency.

"Justice Department personnel will monitor polling place activities during early voting in this county. Civil Rights Division attorneys will coordinate federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials," a release stated.

The oversight is standard for the DOJ but comes at a time of heightened concern over voting law changes in Florida.

Maybe we could invite some people from Afghanistan to monitor our elections to make sure they are free and fair? I mean, we did it for them so they owe us.

Isn't that like the fox monitoring the hen house?
