RNC Requests Action to Correct Voting Machine Irregularity

WASHINGTON – Today, the Republican National Committee submitted a letter to election officials in 6 states – Nevada, Ohio, Kansas, North Carolina, Missouri, and Colorado – because of reports about voting machine irregularity. In a significant number of cases in each of these states, individuals who desired to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney instead populated a vote for Barack Obama.

We request:

1. All voting machines be recalibrated before Election Day.

2. Additional technicians in the event of further issues.

3. Sign notification reminding voters to double-check the correctness of their ballot in the machine before final submission.

4. Verbal guidance to remind voters to make sure that the ballot they cast is correct.
