Like to start a thread to be a central source for any problems reported in the voting today:

So far I have seen this one:

pittsburgh.cbslocal.com...


However, other said they specifically wanted to vote for Republican Donald Trump only to see their vote switched before their eyes to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I went back, pressed Trump again. Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,” Bobbie Lee Hawranko said.


According to the article, the problem was fixed. Wonder how many peoples votes got switched before they even knew there was a problem?

I assume that there will be issues across the country like this, one side or the other.

My vote today was a straight paper ballot that was scanned in a machine to be counted.

Trump is still winning, even with all the headwinds. Go Trump!

There's a search feature and this exact thread is two threads down.

Anytime an anti-Trump thread pops up it's riddled with personal insults and ad hom attacks yet the anti-Hillary threads (duplicate threads at that) are absolutely everywhere.

This is not 4chan, Reddit, or Facebook.

How about we see a second thread for it happening to Hillary? AKA a thread with 0 replies.

Remind us again how you're not voting for Hillary.

How would we know if we are in a state where you write on paper and slip it into a machine?

Thats exactly what I was thinking. How many times did Clinton get a default vote.

There is a thread about votes switching.


This is a thread about ALL election problems at voting places today, not just about having your vote switched, although those will naturally be included in this thread as well.

Its early yet.

Mods can close it if they wish.

Well that thread was specific to Trump switching to Hillary. I get yelled at for posting my video since it wasn't specific to the thread, so I'll live here now that it's a generic voting issue thread.

I'm not voting.

Woke up this morning, made some breakfast with my girlfriend, played some Skyrim, and am now on my way to work.

I'm one of those full-time working people - none of the candidates represent anything close to what I represent.

Tell me again who I am, what I represent, and who I cast my vote for.

Clearly an Internet stranger knows me better than myself lol.

You get yelled at? Who cares?

You're a free human being who has a right to express whatever you please despite what the authoritarian want-to-be's will try to tell you.

If someone is defensive/combatant about something YOU say it says more about them than yourself.

I just don't see the point of multiple (duplicate) threads regarding the same subject matter.

People make comments about "being obsessed with Trump," when making a thread that isn't a pro-Trump notion yet te "obsession," is suddenly no longer applicable to the multiple anti-Hillary threads that pop-up (and again duplicate threads) regularly.

It's called logical consistency and it's all but gone out of the window.

"The elections are rigged," except for when they paint Trump in a positive light.

We are being played, again, and the powers that be and their hollow rhetoric and empty speeches have yet again captivated the American populace into believing that they have a say in governmental affairs (which we don't, and haven't in a very long time).

I really really really tried to talk myself out of voting today.

Almost succeeded.

Almost.

As a life long Democrat, I do not have a problem stating for the record that I voted the straight Republican ticket.

It's the one small thing I can do to show the Democratic Party how I feel about them after everything that has came out in the last few months.

Most likely will vote republican the rest of life thanks to the democrats supporting Hillary Clinton.

Hey, at least you've moved past the point of continually hurling the baseless notion that I am a Hillary supporter.

I don't really support the federal government in America whatsoever.

That's not going to change with Johnson, Hillary, Trump, or Bernie.

The power needs to be in the hands of the people and I don't believe any current candidate has that goal in mind.

I DemExit'd before DemExiting was cool. I left for the same reason, though. Why even be a member of the party when my primary votes don''t matter? Makes no sense to stay.

However, I didn't straight Repub vote. I voted for mostly Libertarians and a few Repubs, and one democrat I do like.
