(COLUMBUS DISPATCH) Citing reports that voters who wanted to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney had their vote switched to President Barack Obama by the voting machines, the Republican National Committee asked elections officials in Ohio and five other states to fix the devices.
The RNC's chief legal counsel said the problems apparently include "miscalibration and hyper-sensitivity of the machines."

The GOP cited a report by Fox News that cited several early voters in North Carolina who said last week they cast ballots for Romney but the electronic voting machine logged their pick as Obama. Similar problems popped up this week in Ohio, where voters said they selected Romney on the touch screen but an Obama vote was logged instead, Fox said.
