Voting machines in Ohio programmed to cheat for Obama!
« on: November 03, 2012, 05:18:25 am »
And it's been claimed to happen in other states such as NC as well.  Apparently, especially according to Fox News, machines all over the state are being programmed to vote for Obama if Romney's name is pressed. 

Of course, when I looked into details, I found this;

Apparently, ONE person in Ohio claimed her machine wasn't working.  Not the whole state, and not 3 states.  ONE person.  Also;

Quote
State elections officials reportedly had the problematic machine inspected. Similar review measures were reportedly taken in North Carolina to ensure that the desired choices were logged properly.
 
Marion County Board of Elections Director Sophia Rogers had this to say on the Ohio early voting incident:
 

“Because of her issue, we had that machine recalibrated. I am certain the equipment works properly.”
 
Rogers also noted that the voting machine used by Stevens worked without issue when she tested it and that no one else had reported any malfunctions. The director also added that, for residents concerned about using the electronic touch-screen machines, paper ballots are still available for use.

So, they took the cheating machine apart, tested it, and found ZERO problems. 

Okay, Republicans, what other B.S. are you going to throw out there?

Anytime you want to know what the Republican party is doing, just look at what they're accusing the Democrats of doing.

I still wanna know how you can fuck up a setup as simple as a voting machine. Pull lever, record vote. Push button, record vote. Basic fucking computing, yet we still have machines which barely work.

Very carefully.

And I mean that non-ironically, for once.

This actually did happen in NC in one voting location with a couple of machines.  There were at least  2 people that reported a problem.  The machine was recalibrated and resolved the problem.  This happened in the county that borders the one I live in.  Here's an article about it.

So no, it's not a Democrat conspiracy or a Republican false accusation.  It's just one of those things that happens from time to time.  Voting machines are basically computers and the can get glitches in them.  No biggie unless it isn't fixed when reported by the voter.
