I did a search for the machine used, AccuVote TSX, and did find something that says there is a screen calibration process for these machines.

That type of calibration (stylus and points) are for parallax adjustments based on the angle of the machine as compared to typical eye-level of the user. It will adjust things 1-5 pixels or so and is a software-based accommodation.

Misalignment from that process will not result in such a huge (50+ pixels) mismatch in one section of the screen -- at least not unless whomever did the calibration purposefully went way off script… but if that happened, all votes would be screwed, not one.

When I went and voted today.

I was given a paper ballot. Then walked to the scanner.

Not everyone uses those kinds of machines.

The only thing I was upset about was them asking me to show my id.

Since ATS tells me how wrong that is.

I had no problems when I voted today but I got home to this news and it is disconcerting. To me it just doesn't make the Democratic party look bad, it makes voting in general look bad.

Personally I'm not favoring any party over the other but this seems too out if hand to just be an isolated calibration error. A whole load of VA Beach precincts and even some in my area may have votes that are not true to the original intentions.

I was appalled as well Neo. Everything felll out of my wallet when I had to get my ID out...



I felt like I was being felt up by the TSA... I think that's what they told me I should feel like at any rate.

(sigh)

No one said showing ID was wrong, only the very narrow list of ID's some people don't have; or to get, costs money.

In nearly all states, if you don't have your driver's license, your voter registration card is fine.


Excellent that you got a paper ballot -- sucks that it went into an optical scanner.

I had my voter card out and ready. They would not allow me to vote without further ID. I tried.

What state? That's all I ever needed in NY and CT… though I always had more, that's all I ever provided.

I know. I am almost ashamed to admit that I actually have a real voter ID card ...

I'm trying to find an article I read last year (might be longer), that providing every person (not just registered voters) in the USA with an NSA-level secure ID card for voting, and the ultra-secure machines to scan them, would cost less than the nation's total investment in touch-screen voting machines, which have almost no security.

Virginia. I emailed my mom and she said they required the same. Over zealous maybe and I didn't mind showing it, but they did ask for it after I had already handed them my voter card. I had to dig out my ID while I was in line.

Thankfully, your stove doesn't decide who writes federal laws!


Some days I think her stove might make a better choice than our voting public

Nah what really sucks is that every election cycle be it midterms, or the presidential elections.

We are always put forward with a false choice.

We all pick our guys under the false assumption that things are ever going to get better.

They never do.

My precinct (located in PA) specifically told me that they did not need to see my ID, which I had in my hand. They required nothing but my word that I was who I said.

Yeah it's not like they created something like the SS number that branded all Americans as 'cattle'.

According to this, your voter registration card is valid ID in Virginia.

Anyone actually surprised that vote rigging is already in process in the USA?

I'm certainly not, it was inevitable.

That's how it was in NY also. But my last name is pronounced differently than one would think from the spelling -- so it was just easier to hand them my voter ID card so they could check me off.

Part of that is the poor choices in candidates that we have. The last two Presidential elections are prime examples.
