Hurray...Now comes the explanation...

B. Citing faulty voting equipment, confusing ballots, voter error, and problems at polling places, a new study of the 2000 United States presidential election has estimated that 4 million to 6 million of the 100 million votes cast were not counted.

D. A new study has cited faulty voting equipment, confusing ballots, voter error, and problems at polling places in estimating that 4 million to 6 million of the 100 million votes that were cast had not been counted in the 2000 United States presidential election.

--> D seems as if the new study is giving an excuse in estimating the loss of votes ( or rather the count of them).

--> B Shows - But instead the new study states that it has estimated a loss of 4-6 million votes on account of X,Y,Z reasons...

IMO "estimated" should be the main verb rather than "cited". And more over the past perfect tense may not be required.

SO I would go with B
