My ballot went to straight Democrat and I couldn't change it.

This is precisely why I will never support the idea of electric voting in Australia. Here we have paper and pencils and ballot boxes. The AEC, Australian Electoral Commission, use volunteer workers to count the ballots and anyone who is a citizen can volunteer. Volunteers work in partners that they don't choose to count the ballots and they both count and check each other have read it correctly. All paper ballots from any election in Australian history are kept in storage at the National archives and a total recount can be called if there is anything odd. Sometimes old fashioned is better imo.

Should we call a foul?


I'm not sure Silly, but I do find it concerning if they are doing anything other than what the voter specifically chose regardless of who benefits from it

Mine ended up being a mixed ballot but mine came out just as I voted so I am thinking (hoping?) it is an isolated fluke

I know this is only hearsay but the ol lady just got home and asked if I had been on FarceBook today (she already knew I hadn't been). She said that she read a post from a distant family member of hers that lives in Georgia.

The story goes that this relative's husband took his mother to vote. Being that she is elderly, they allowed him to accompany her to the voting booth. Upon getting there, he noticed that the Governor, Lieutenant Gov, and Attorney General had already been marked as Democrat. He called an official over and inquired about it. They attempted to switch the vote without having to reset the machine but that did not work so the official ended up having to reset it so that she could begin with a clean ballot.

This story was posted on the FarceBook by her relative and I would not typically believe anything without proof, I do know her husband and he has always been a no BS kind of guy, so I don't see him just making it up. Also, both he and his wife (the relative) are pastors. Again, this doesn't prove anything because there have been many pastors who are less than honorable but I do feel that he is more on the honorable side of things.

I asked the ol lady to screenshot the post so that I could put it here. To her surprise, the post had been deleted. She said that there had been several comments about other voting irregularities in Georgia today. Several people showed up to vote and were informed that they had already voted today. One was told he had voted in Fulton County already. There was not even enough time for him to get from Fulton County to where he was standing. After several comments with people telling their stories of voting oddities, she said that things turned into a pretty heated mudslinging, political fight. I assume that is why the post was deleted. Knowing these people in as small of a capacity as I do, I do know they are not about causing drama and the intentions for posting the story was (in my mind) just a PSA to look at the screen before voting rather than a political attack.

Anyways, if I do happen upon the post somehow and can get screen grab, I will post. Again, just hearsay, so take it with a grain of salt.

It worries me that computers are used for voting.

Not because I am a conspiracy nut (I am) but because they can become corrupted. It is hard to lose a wooden box full of ballots. It's easy to lose a lot of virtual 1s and 0s.

I agree, I'm glad we still use paper and pens in the UK.
...well pencils to be honest but I always take my own pen.


Hard to cheat that way, good system that needs revisited in the US.

WTFrig…. the site is behaving like its on dial-up mode


AnyHoo… the Thread title meant something to me... in that at the start of voting today there were many reports here in zip 29577 that voting machine irregularities were numerous "(I hear 'talk radio' all night on local WRNN)

~so I decided~ it wasn't worth the effort to vote --> because:
A) my electric car was blocked from the charger by the station-wagon from 5-10AM
B) because the US Senators from SC were not scheduled for a vote cycle ~ I will vote anti-Graham next time ~

I left the voting outcome, minus my vote, up to my 'higher power' to sort out, im tired of fretting issues I have no control over

Electronic voting should never occur, we should only use paper ballot. A paper trail is much more difficult to erase than a digital trail.

Computers should have NEVER been involved with voting in the first place. It should always be written, or at the very least recorded on audio and/or video.

I can't seem to get it work in ATS, please watch this stupid crap on readit:

Watch the buttons dance

But noooo, computers are SAFE! Of course they are, what would you use else?!
Pencil?
Where are we? Are we in the stone-age again, hahaha?

Edit:
OOOhhhh, it was the same in 2012! Video on vimeo
Strange, that it always seem to prefer the Republican candidates. Must be a glitch, completely random!

Do you use paper and pen like we do in the UK? I imagine Germany to be all teched up using computers instead.

Oh dear god, no! We are using pencil and paper, and every attempt from politicians to change that is downvoted very fast, very low by the people.

You see, a computer club was founded in the 80s, called the "Chaos Computer Club", and it was immensely successful in revealing computer security problems - starting in the 80s with an attack on the BTX-system, an interactive videotext service, which was broadcasted live on tv. That made a lot of people nervous and there is indeed a deeply ingrained conviction to not trust computers, esp. with relevant data like votes, money, etc.
The industry is trying to reprogram us so we would finally start using NFC-wallets in our mobiles, healthcare-ids with in system-saved health reports, etc.

We do not want that.

Therefore, if the industry and lobbied politicians are re-trying to sell us voting machines, they get consequently shot down. I hope that will last for a long time, there are far too many examples of easily-hacked voting machines. Do not want!

Haha that's good to read you are still fighting as resistance same as we are in the UK!
British people trust pen and paper...papers which are counted by local authority workers, regular Joe's earning some overtime, people who we know counting them, our peers.

Voters should not have to know about a certain wait time when voting. The software should handle getting it done correctly. Must be some crappy code and hardware if it becomes an issue.
