Federal observers will monitor elections in two northeast Ohio counties to ensure there are no violations of the Voting Rights Act.

A statement from the U.S. Justice Department says observers will monitor polling places in Cuyahoga County and Lorain County on Tuesday based on court orders. The federal law prohibits discrimination in elections on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.
