You can see that, on the voting screen above, the voter made the selection they wanted. But when they went to vote for the 2nd Congressional District,
the selection for Democrat is picked when the voter tries to hit the Republican candidate.
The explanation that the touch sensor
is misaligned is completely bogus.
This is intentional election fraud, by some operative (probably democrat), through modifying the machines. Flat-screen touch screens do not have a
separately calibrated "touch sensor," only CRT touch screens do. Flat-panel LCD/LED touch screens are built with a sensor layer that is manufactured
with a pixel-to-pixel alignment with the screen. The fact that a proper choice was made is proof there is nothing wrong with the screen.
I call BS on this one. Someone is modifying these easy to modify machines.
That's my state and it's been blowing up the news. I just got back in from voting not long ago and it took hitting the vote button no less than 10
times to finally get it to go through. The guy was on his way over there to "help" me by the time it went through. Seeing this before I went made me
There's an awful lot of folks losing faith in the voting process. This is just one more reason why.
The votes they could get from the elderly alone (not seeing well, not understanding exactly what's going on) would be worth it to them I think. Not
everyone who votes is 20. I could very easily see older folks not paying attention to this or not knowing exactly what they are doing.
Old fashioned resistive style touch screens on modern devices can do this as they're nowhere near as precise as the better capacitive touch screens
in more widespread use nowadays.All modern flat touch screens can be calibrated (and need to be in most cases).I've got a resistive touch screen
media player that's almost impossible to get calibrated correctly and quite frequently selects the next or previous character when typing,or the next
line up or down when selecting a whole line.Ten seconds of video is hardly proof of vote rigging unless you've actually caught the perp in the act of
re-calibrating the screen or other acts of skullduggery.
Even if it's not a conspiracy to rig an election one way or the other, this needs to be looked at AND FIXED. What's the point of voting if you don't
know what the hell the machine is going to do with it?
Move along is the last thing people need to do when bragging about their awesome democratic voting process.
IT'S BROKEN... on purpose or not may be another story, but it doesn't change the fact that it's not working the way it should. Human error/mechanical
error. It's an error that decides the fate of your country.
edit on 11/4/2014 by Kangaruex4Ewe because: (no reason given)
any and all people caught defrauding the election process should be arrested given a trial and then taken out back and summarily tarred feathered
then hung .republicans dems independents any one that tries to rig voting should taken out back and delt with very publicly (after trial )
If the screens have issues just as a matter of course, then electronic voting isn't ready for prime time and shouldn't happen until it is. Thank
goodness my county still has the old style #2 pencil and color in ballots.
It's not an excuse to tell people that their votes glitched, move on. This is too important, and if you are worried that requiring someone to have ID
is disenfranchising than not requiring the polling place to have working equipment is also disenfranchising.
I also wonder why we never get reports of this switching someone's vote to the Republican? I've only ever heard of the vote switching to Democrat.
