Conservatives Will Use Poll Watchers in Mississippi

The New York Times reports that conservative groups are deploying "election observers" to monitor Mississippi's GOP Senate runoff to "observe whether the law is being followed."

Rick Hasen: "The idea here appears to be that because poll workers cannot discourage Democrats from voting in the election (based upon an unenforceable Mississippi law which says that only those who intend to support the nominee of the party in the primary can vote in the primary), these outside election observers... may make such encouragement."
