Secretary of State says no evidence provided of voting machine irregularity

CREATED Nov. 2, 2012

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Republic National Committee is alleging voting machines in Nevada and five other states are flawed.

In a letter sent to state officials Thursday, the RNC says a significant number of cases have been reported where a voter checked Mitt Romney's name on their electronic ballot but their vote was actually cast for President Obama.

The letter does not say votes were actually recorded for the wrong candidate, but the RNC is asking that the machines be re-calibrated.

Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller wasted no time in responding to the claims. He says that his office has not received any complaints.

Miller went on to say that the letter fails to provide any direct evidence that any particular voter in Nevada experienced any errors with their voting machines or any details which could be used to open an investigation.

The bottom line is that all voters, regardless of their party, should double check before submitting their ballot.

Friday, Nov. 2 is the last day to cast your vote early in Southern Nevada.
