WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Voting-rights groups that virtually stopped registering voters in Florida for a year as they challenged the state’s new restrictions on elections now are scrambling to get people there registered for the November 6 election.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The campaigns of President Barack Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, are preparing for what could be a series of legal battles over new U.S. voting laws after the November 6 election – especially if the result of the presidential race is close.
