E-voting investigation requested

Six Democratic congressmen have asked the Government Accountability Office to investigate reports of voting irregularities in the Nov. 2 election, many of them involving electronic touch-screen voting machines.

A Nov. 5 letter to Comptroller General David Walker cited news reports of problems in California, Florida, North Carolina and Ohio in which thousands of votes were erroneously recorded, deleted or added.

Signing the letter were Reps. John Conyers of Michigan, Rush Holt of New Jersey, Jerrold Nadler of New York, Robert Scott of Virginia, Melvin Watt of North Carolina and Robert Wexler of Florida.
