GOP Alleges Voting Machine Problems

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Republican National Committee alleges voting machines in Nevada and five other states are flawed and improperly showing votes for President Obama instead of GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

In a letter sent Thursday to state election officials, the RNC’s chief counsel says a “significant number” of cases have been reported of votes showing up for Obama when a voter selected Romney on the touch-screen machines.

The letter does not allege votes were actually recorded for the wrong candidate.

The RNC asks that machines be recalibrated and voters be reminded to double-check their choices before their votes are
recorded.

Claims of rigged voting machines were raised in the 2010 U.S. Senate race between Democrat Harry Reid and Republican Sharron Angle but were not substantiated.
