Ken Cuccinelli's office enters the politically charged investigation after the Republican-dominated State Board of Elections voted unanimously Wednesday to authorize the inquiry.

A Pennsylvania man working for a company Republicans hired to conduct voter registration drives faces criminal charges in Rockingham County on allegations he trashed eight completed voter registration forms.
