Stories in this week’s New Yorker from ProPublica, the non-profit investigative journalism group, raise questions about whether a northeast Ohio  poultry company  has racked up one of the worst safety records in the industry, in part by recruiting undocumented immigrants.  I spoke with the writer, Michael Grabell, about Case Farms.

Ohio prepares to vote

Much of the country will vote before Election Day. Starting this week, our Electionland project has begun looking for problems that prevent people from voting.

Election Day is still about 10 days away, but some Americans are already casting ballots. About 20 states, including Ohio, and the District of Columbia have early voting programs. Ohio's began two weeks ago and includes two weekends of early, in-person voting.
