MARK SHERMAN: Claims vary, but basically, they involve absentee ballots, ballots that were mailed in. And they mostly involve how those ballots are being processed and counted, and in some cases whether Republican poll observers have the opportunity to get a close enough look at those ballots just in case there's any question about signature or anything else in the ballot.
