More than 1,000 Gore supporters protest ballot

Coming home
\S

ELECTION
Vontinued from Page 1
ficial recounts, and "I hope they're going to be a lot
more accurate than the other night."
That was a reference to television networks
hat prematurely declared Gore the winner in
Florida and then reversed course and said Bush
Jad won the state -- and with it the White
House.
In addition to the partial recount-by-hand in
Palm Beach County, the board in Broward Coun-
ty arranged a meeting for today to discuss the
Gore campaign's request for a manual recount
there.
With the outcome of the presidential race in the
balance, allegations on both sides were becoming
ja creasingly heated.
Gore campaign manager William Daley said
courts may find the Florida result "an injustice
unparalkeled in our history."
Bush chairman Don Evans countered, "The
Democrats who are politicizing and distorting these
events risk doing so at the expense of our democra-
More than 1,000 Gore supporters demonstrated
outside a government building in downtown West
Faim Beach, demanding another election in the
unty.
They said the confusing configuration of their bal-
ot had cost the vice president votes.
-"Gore got more," they chanted.

The Gore campaign contended the ballots in Palm
Beach County were illegal. Reform Party candidate
Buchanan said "ineptitude" in ballot design may
have caused many Democrats to vote for him mad-
vertently.
James Baker Ill, the former secretary of state
brought in by Bush to represent his interests in
Florida, said, "That ballot was posted, as required
by Florida law, in newspapers and public places all
over the state of Florida. And we haven't heard
one gripe about that ballot until after the voting
took place"
Across the state, other allegations of voting
improprieties ranged from missing ballots to prob-
lems with tabulations and intimidation of black
voters.
The Gore campaign requested that some 1.78 mil-
lion ballots be hand-counted in Palm Beach, Volusia,
Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
Eight lawsuits challenging the results were filed in
state or federal court, including six in Palm Beach
County and two in Tallahassee, where race discrimi-
nation was alleged.
The first case to reach a judge was dropped by
the plaintiff in federal court in West Palm
Beach.
In one of the other cases, Palm Beach voter Ken-
neth Horowitz, owner of the Miami Fusion soccer
team and a registered independent, filed a lawsuit
along vwith two other people.
The suit contended poll workers told voters
they had only five minutes to cast their ballots

"That ballot was posted,
as required by Florida law,
in newspapers and public
places ...
- James Baker
Former secretary of state
and anyone who took longer would have his bal-
lot tossed out.
Officials in the heavily Democratic county
rejected 19,120 ballots on election night
because more than one presidential candidate
was selected. Gore supporters blamed the ballot
design.
Confusion arose from the way the county's
punch-card style ballot was laid out.
Candidates were listed in two columns, sepa-
rated by holes for punching.
The controversy prompted an emotional midday
demonstration in West Palm Beach.
Democrats noted that the 3,407 votes for
Buchanan were by far the most of any Florida
county, and almost 20 percent of his total vote in
the state.
"Our vote was stolen," Gore supporter Don Lift-
man said. "Three thousand Buchanan supporters in a
county full of Jewish condo residents? I don't think
so.

MOORE
Cotinued from Page 1
Elisa Moore was pronounced dead
at St. Joseph's Hospital in Ypsilanti
about an hour after the accident.
Moore, 21, the daughter of Univer-.
tty associate Kinesiology Prof. David
Moore, will be remembered tonight at
a memorial service in the Michigan
Union Ballroom from 5:30 to 8:30
p.m. Students at Oakwood College in
Alabama, where Eisa Moore attended
classes for one semester, held a memo-
rial service earlier this week.
"It shows how she touched the catn-
us so much that when we heard the
ws 10 or 15 of us got together to pray

for her and the family" said Elisa's
friend Kareem Griffith, a student at
Oakwood College. "It swas overwhelm-
ing and unbelievable to see how she
could be there for one semester and
touch so many lives. It ssas amazing,"
she added. "She was really blessed and
we are blessed to have known her and
have her in our lives."
June Moore said a busload of stu-
dents from the Alabama college plan
to attend the service today in Ann
Arbor. The service also vill give stu-
dents a chance to honor Elisa's life.
"It will be an opportunity for stu-
dents to come together and share,
and we have a program set and a
display of pictures of Eisa," her

mother said.
Randy Skeete, the director of acade-
mic enrichment at the University Med-
ical School, is scheduled to speak at
the service.
Ha nson said academics were
extremely important to Elisa. "She was
a great student. She worked very hard
at everything she did," he said. "We
studied for all of our finals together."
Elisa's 18-year-old brother, Jere-
my, also said she was committed to
her schoolwork. "If I had one word
to say about her, it's 'dedicated.'
She put her all into everything she
did,? he said.
June Moore said in addition to her
daughter's work in the School of Engi-

neering, Elisa was also extremely active
in her church. "She was the vice presi-
dent of the Adventist Students for Christ
and she was one of the founding mem-
bers of that organization,"she said.
Hanson said his favorite memory of
Elisa is the first day she convinced hin
to attend church with her.
"She was the one who started me
going to church. Ever since then I've
been going regularly. She was very
religious and proud of it, she always
talked about church and religion," he
said.
Funeral services for Elisa are sched-
uled for II a.m. Monday at the Sev-
enth Day Adventist Church in
Ypsilanti.
