The Web site Raw Story is reporting that the U.S. Justice Department will monitor today's Shelby County elections. Raw Story says the Department indicated in a release today that it, "will watch and record activities during voting hours at various polling locations in the city to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act."

We're not sure whether to be comforted or depressed, but given last night's stolen ballot box caper, we suspect they've come to the right place.
