Multiple reports of electronic voting machine irregularities have begun to pour in from all over the country as Americans take to the polls today.

WP is keeping tabs on all the vote irregularities;
Roundup: Voter irregularities
this particular incident hasn't made it to that list, and honestly without independent corroboration it may never be. At least the video evidence helps.

If someone were to manipulate the software for voting machines, why would they make it so visually obvious? Why make it visually select the wrong person, and let voters know there is an issue?

Wait, so you can just walk in, ask for a ballot and vote? You don't have to give them any info?
Every time I've voted I had to at least tell them my name if I didn't have my voter ID card. They have these huge books and look my name up in it to see if I'm registered.
I think you should have to be a registered voter to vote...and that's it. You should have to show your voter ID card, and if you don't have it -- another piece of ID that they can look up to see if you're registered.
I don't agree with just letting anyone and everyone just walk in and grab a ballot like it's an drawing for a new snowmobile.
Edit to add: And I am NOT a GOP/Republican supporter. I just think if you want to vote, take it seriously and register. Besides, a voter ID card can be used as another form of ID. I like having multiple forms of ID.edit on 6-11-2012 by MystikMushroom because: (no reason given)

The same articles floating around claiming this problem also state,
In North Carolina, Kansas, and Ohio, some electronic voting machines recorded votes for Obama even when voters had selected Romney. Joan Stevens, a voter in Marion, Ohio, told The Marion Star that it took her three tries before her vote for Romney was recorded properly.
But that part is being overlooked.....
