RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's Republican Party has sued the State Board of Elections, alleging that touch-screen machines are thwarting efforts by voters to cast Republican ballots.
A complaint filed in federal court Friday accuses election officials of failing to take action to ensure votes are accurately counted. Election officials have said there have only been a few isolated problems with voting machines and that officials were able to quickly fix the problems.
Republican Party officials say they have heard problems in a number of counties. They are demanding that election officials provide notice to all voters about problems, preserve all data and track all complaints.
