Student in Mississippi discovers only today that her registration had been rejected without her knowledge - other students appear to be affected too. Also, heavily African-American precinct in Hinds County had polling booths separated by partisan preference and with more machines on the GOP side - this was later corrected by election officials. 

Via Votersunite, an article in the Clarion-Ledger:

There have been reports of college students being unable to vote at some Mississippi universities, including the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.

Kimberli Dixon, a 26-year-old graduate student who wants to be a principal one day, stood outside the Forrest County Courthouse this morning, holding a sign that said, "One Vote Counts."

She said she registered to vote at a local church, but learned her form had been rejected by the clerk's office because the name of her dorm wasn't listed.

The clerk's office never informed her of the problem, she said. She has since learned that dozens of students are having the same problem.

She voted this morning by affidavit ballot. "You know, it probably won't get counted," she said. "It hurts me deep inside."

Back in 2000, she voted in her hometown in Broward County, Fla., and her ballot became one of the many examined by poll workers after the presidential election. "So now I come up here, and they have even more problems," she said.

There were other early complaints of voting problems, including scattered reports of voting machine problems in Hinds County. In one case, Hinds County election officials were sent to a heavily black precinct to check reports that voting machines were separated for Democrats and Republicans, with more machines on the GOP side. The situation was corrected by mid-morning.
