sleepover
 n.— «Ohio’s elections chief is reconsidering a plan to prohibit poll workers from taking voting machines home for safekeeping in the days before the November presidential election. Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner announced plans in February to scrap the practice known as “sleepovers” because of security concerns but is now facing opposition from county elections officials who say the custom makes it easier to transport machines to polling sites.» —“Ohio official mulls new voting machine rule” by Stephen Majors in Columbus, Ohio Ohio.com July 9, 2008.
