Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted acknowledged “losing” more than 30,000 registration updates, meaning these voters could be disenfranchised.
According to Husted, the loss is due to a computer error which prevented the updates from being recorded by the Secretary of State’s office, The Advancement Project reported Thursday.
A new CNN/ORC International Poll shows the presidential race remains tight in the battleground state of Colorado, with 50% of likely voters backing Barack Obama and 48% supporting Mitt Romney.
That 2-point margin for Obama is well within the survey's sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
As in most swing states, there is a fairly big gender gap, with Romney ahead among men by 10 points and Obama winning women by 13 points.
Obama won Colorado's nine electoral votes by nearly 9 points in the 2008 election, but Romney has kept it close in 2012.
