2. C means: "4 million to 6 million..." cite faulty ...." ---> awkard, C out
3. D wordy, D out
4. E wordy and confused meaning., E out

C is the best "estimated that...is correct"

If you ask the Q who is "Citing faulty voting equipment, confusing ballots, voter error, and problems at polling places" the answer is the study. C has modifier issue.

B uses estimated that.

Wait a sec, I guess you wanted to say B but said C by mistake. C does not use estimated that.

Choice A: "which" refers to "presidential election" >>> this choice is wrong
Choice C is wordy
Choice D is also wordy.
Choice E: Estimate without that >>> unidiomatic

Choice B is the best
