National news outlets, including the Washington Post and Fox News, are reporting on early voting issues in Shelby County, which include distribution of incorrect ballots and a court challenge aimed at allowing voters to use library cards as official voter identification. State officials are closely monitoring the process, as is the U.S. Department of Justice. The department's Memphis division said today that assistant U.S. attorneys and FBI agents will be available this week to handle any complaints of election fraud and voter rights abuses.
