Poll watcher in 4 Dixie states with orders to bar voting bias

Attorney General William French Smith ordered 358 federal observers stationed at polling places in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and North Carolina to avert racial discrimination in today's general election.

The 358 observers will be supervised by 29 attorneys and paralegal specialists in the civil rights division.
