The 125-page report was to be released at a Washington, D.C. news conference on Tuesday. Among its findings:

--Polling places and voting hours in minority neighborhoods are routinely changed shortly before elections.

--Election officials were found to have illegally purged voter lists and refused to translate election materials for citizens who are not fluent in English.

--Voters and advocates complained to federal officials about unfair election practices more often between 1982 and 2004 than between 1965 and 1982, data compiled from Department of Justice records show.
