Ballot Tampering Questioned In Senate Race
Coakley Campaign Says Voters Given Pre-Marked Ballots

BOSTON -- Democrat Martha Coakley's campaign raised issues of ballot tampering in at least three jurisdictions and urged Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin to further look into the matter as millions of Bay State residents went to the polls to elect a successor to Sen. Edward Kennedy.


"We have received reports of five ballots -- spanning three jurisdictions," Elias said.

Elias said the voters caught the errors and brought the ballots to back to the poll workers.

"This is obviously a serious violation, and our legal team is taking immediate steps to protect the integrity of this election," campaign manager Kevin Conroy said. "We do not yet know why this is happening, but you and everyone you know needs to be aware of the situation so that you can carefully inspect your ballot."
