We reported last week that voting machines in North Carolina were changing votes from Romney to Obama. Now it appears that the same problem is occurring in the all-important state of Ohio.
from the Marion Star (emphasis mine):
Joan Stevens was one of several early voters at the polls on Monday. But when Stevens tried to cast her ballot for president, she noticed a problem.
Upon selecting “Mitt Romney” on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up.
It took Stevens three tries before her selection was accurately recorded.
“You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” Stevens said.
Stevens said she alerted Jackie Smith, a board of elections member who was present. Smith declined to comment, but Stevens says she mentioned that the machine had been having problems all day.
Stevens also reported the issue to Sophia Rogers, the director of the board of elections for Marion County.
Rogers said the machine worked fine when she and others tried voting on it. No one else had reported problems with the voting machines malfunctioning.
So which is it? Is the machine working fine or has it been having problems all day? This is why GOP voter turnout is going to be so massively important. Republicans need to show up to the polls in mass numbers to make sure that the election isn’t stolen by computer glitches or fraudulent votes.
