TRUE: An improperly calibrated voting machine prevented a Republican candidate from voting for himself and votes were cast "opposite" from the candidates selected during early voting in Cook County, Illinois.
Please if you think voting a waste of time, your responses will be a waste of time here.

i Do believe that it is a waste of time, sorry to say, now that voting has gone digital, it makes even less sense to put in any effort.
But let's say the system is honest, and that like with any software, glitches can happen.
how can it be checked? is there and "undo" button? or a counter that clearly shows "where"the vote went?
and if you have doubts, you would also have to say who you voted for, and isn't that "private"information to begin with?
I just don't see how you can check if the machine is doing the proper thing.

As long as no paper-trail is produced for manual counting, you can't check anything!
It is not a waste of time if you get people together and insist on paper ballots to go along with the machine vote.
