Pennsylvania Voting Machine Converts Obama Vote to Romney Vote

Voting Machine Changes Obama Votes to Romney Votes.

 

IT IS BEING reported that a Pennsylvania voting machine was changing a vote for Obama to one for Romney. A voter captured the device changing the votes on video and posted it to YouTube. The video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=QdpGd74DrBM

MSNBC reported earlier today that the machine was taken out of service. But this raises troubling questions for today's election, which will undoubtedly be a close one: what other machines are changing votes and who is responsible for this?

Too bad the voter didn't attempt to hit Romney's name to see if then changed the vote to Obama...I can't imagine that anyone that voted on this machine allowed their vote to be changed though, who would push next when their candidate clearly wasn't selected?

I agree Christie. But my bigger concern is how many instances similar to this one are not being noticed? Trent

Actually if you go to the original Reddit article it says that he tried EVERY Candidate and Obama was the only one that was reporting the incorrect result. He also went on to say that he felt it was probably a calibration error and not deliberate but wanted to bring attention to it. There have also been reports from Colorado of the opposite happening - someone voting for Romney and having Obama being highlighted.

You'd have to really not being paying attention not to notice...
