It's because the electronic voting business is crap. Why would a country not have open source and/or reviewable software.

I believe a representative from each candidate on the ballot or at least each party is present during voting hours.
Its true for presidential elections here in Virginia anyway. I didnt pay attention when we voted for Governor last November.

I am a software person. I vote using a paper ballot. It still doens't mean my vote is accounted for correctly.

I can't see how software could inadvertently, yet consistently, replace one name on a data list without some code telling it to do so, either randomly or every so many votes. If that's true, then this is a case of fraud, deliberately perpetrated by someone who wants Ted Cruz elected. Maybe they're not as smart you or as well connected to the core software you're referring to.

If you are voting straight ticket, you wouldn't be voting for Beto O'Rourke. That's not voting straight ticket.


If you're voting "Straight Ticket" for Republicans, except that you want to vote for Beto, instead of Ted, because not all Republicans like Ted, you can manually change from Ted Cruz to Beto O'Rourke. But, some of the machines are kicking the Beto O'Rourke vote, that was deliberately and manually changed, to a "no one" vote.


By definition, that is not voting straight ticket though, and you never intended to vote straight ticket.

Again, stop being disingenuous. You can't be as thick as you make yourself out to be.

I would hope so, leaving either side unchecked by the other could and would likely lead to systematic abuse.

Both sides would take advantage of something like that if they could.

I'm still not seeing fraud as claimed by the OP though. Maybe you could help explain that to them. Ante certainly doesn't want to.

It's called a bug, and it's happening on both sides of the divide for anyone who votes straight ticket. The name flips from either O'Rourke to Cruz or Cruz to O'Rourke if certain conditions with the machine are replicated, usually done by the voter. Since this only occurs to those who are attempting to vote straight ticket, it is a glitch in the code.

Unaccounted for action (inconsistent) of the program based on how the user interacts with it.

Yes, it is, by definition of the rules...


In Texas....
A voter, however, may vote a straight-party ticket and subsequently cast an individual vote in a particular race.

It's not a bug. Software doesn't accidently tell the computer to select an item from a data list and insert it in a separate data list.

I don't understand what you're saying. The only user interaction here is selecting "Straight Ticket" and then either Democrat or Republican.

I think this is just user error especially as a clerk is able to assist in correcting the "error".
Paper ballots. No hanging chads ( remember them?) no computer error, no oops we erased ten thousand votes by mistake.

For instance, if the selection varies by how quickly a person uses the machine or moves through the selections then it most likely is.

My guess is the machines have a glitch, and the poll workers know how to operate them properly.


Look, you either press the button, or you don't press the button. The user has no control over the list of candidates the computer throws up once the button has been pushed.

I would like to point out what wikipedia says about using wikipedia as a reliable source



Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Wikipedia editors try their very hardest to maintain this site. Multiple measures, such as IP-bans and article protection, are used to prevent vandalism of this site and maintain its credibility. But Wikipedia can be edited by anyone at any time

I can't see how this insertion of Ted Cruz' name has anything to do with speed.

Hence my statement of computer glitch combined with user error. Your own OP source even has examples of people changing it manually themselves without any help.

You are just being willfully ignorant because it suits your purpose.

Even silly is calling this thread BS, and I gave her a star for the first time ever for it. That should tell you something.

I'll ask you the same question I asked another poster. Why would Wikipedia contributors need to lie about the Straight Ticket voting process, and a voter option to manually change a pre-selected candidate? No on is complaining that doing so wiped out their votes and they had to start over.

They're complaining because the list displays the opposition's candidate instead of theirs. They're complaining because the list displays the wrong candidate. They're not complaining about Straight Ticket voting rules.

I would also ask you to provide evidence that this information is incorrect, other than one posters antidotal story.
