Trying to ensure no mistakes
The votes haven't even been tallied yet, but both sides already are gearing up for a legal battle just in case.
Both the Obama and Romney campaigns have rallied thousands of lawyers to serve as poll watchers to ensure no mistakes are made this Election Day.
But political strategist Camara Clifton says that doesn't mean the fight won't spill over into a courtroom.
"If we don't have a landslide for Romney, I think the Democrats will demand some sort of recount," says Clifton. But she adds it goes both ways.
"If the electoral vote doesn't go for Romney with a landslide, if the electoral vote doesn't match the popular vote, then the GOP will take issue with that," she says.
UH law professor Peter Linzer sees issues arising in both Florida and Ohio where minority voters already feel disenfranchised.
"In both states you have Republican state government accused of manipulating voters' eligibility," Linzer tells KTRH News. "There will be people who were not allowed to vote, or were only allowed to give a provisional ballot, and they're litigating in court whether these people should be allowed to vote fully."
Then there's the Hurricane Sandy hangover which could skew numbers in the northeast. However, neither believes we'll see a repeat of Bush v. Gore.
