It would be the easist hack. The touch screen hardware/software interface is seperate from the software internals which record input with various required security protocols etc. Just a laymans guess.

Like I said before, who knows if this happened to someone else who was in a rush. This guy caught it but people before him might not have. That's why I still say that paper ballots should be the only way to vote. You can change software, you can reprogram it, higher ups could mess with it without anyone knowing.
With paper ballots there's a way smaller chance that they could be tampered with. Someone on here suggested adding a bar code to the paper ballots which would be a good idea. That way you could track your ballot, make sure it was counted and the vote stayed the same as before. Issues like this shouldn't happen, it's just asking for people to say that the vote was rigged. Sure, it would take a lot longer to count but don't you think it would be worth it?

It is a glitch in the touch screen. It happens to my iPad from time to time. Sorry, there is no conspiracy
