Mayor Nutter appointed a fact-finding group headed by Managing Director Richard Negrin on Friday to review reports of problems during the presidential election.
"On Election Day, there were reports questioning the integrity of the voter registration lists, the supply of provisional ballots, and the preparedness of some poll workers to address new state voter laws," Nutter said. He said City Commissioners Anthony Clark, Al Schmidt, and Stephanie Singer, who run city elections, had agreed to cooperate with the fact-finding. Nutter also named the Rev. Kevin Johnson, pastor of Bright Hope Baptist Church, and four members of his administration to assist Negrin. - Miriam Hill
