    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Michael Moore, just a citizen with a posse 

    From our Ohio sources comes word that filmmaker Michael Moore created a stir by showing up at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday.

    Moore, engulfed by reporters as he tried to make his way through the lobby, said he was in the Cleveland area in a watchdog role. He had marshalled a crew of about 1,200 people -- about 300 in Ohio, 600 in Florida and the rest scattered elsewhere -- to film possible instances of voter fraud or abuse. Some were outfitted with home video cameras; others toted professional equipment.

    Moore said his crews had found no evidence of wrongdoing in Ohio. ‘‘What I've seen here so far isn't official abuse, it's neglect,'' he said, referring to the insufficient number of voting booths in many precincts.

    The footage, he said, would be made available to reporters and turned over to federal authorities.

    ‘‘I'm not making a movie,'' he said. ‘‘I'm here as a citizen to stand up for the right to vote.''
