In Volusia County, it was true that some blacks were turned away from the polls. This was headline news here.
However, what failed to make the news here (but made it elsewhere) was that it was found out that these "disenfranchised student voters" had FAILED TO REGISTER TO VOTE, and that is why they were turned away.
Turned away, WHY? Because they went to the WRONG polling station, THAT'S WHY. I'd get turned away, too if I went to the wrong place to vote. That is NOT disenfranchising.
