2012 Voting Machines Altering Votes - Vote Obama, end up with Romney 

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot. I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the bla

  • I'm a software developer too, except the *real* kind that can/has written touch drivers. If you take your other finger and push the top left of the screen over Romney, every time you touch Obama its going to register half way between and toggle Romney. This is how we handle "fat fingers" and its part of the usual algorithm for anything not multi-touch or needing gestures, like a basic voting machine. If this was legit, he'd pull the camera back and show he doesn't have his other finger More..

    • @DoubledCashew its not fake, its simply a mistake on the casters part. Don't select constitutionalist, republican, green party if you intend to vote for a republican, either chose nothing at all (its optional) or chose democrat. This is not rigged, it's common sense, and it's a easy mistake to be made, I selected constitutionalist and couldn't make my vote, and when I clicked my person, it auto clicked the nearest constitutionalist rather than the person of a different party that I wanted. Some More..

  • America is fucked either way. Obama will flounder while Congress stonewalls him on everything, and if Romney wins he'll forcibly assfuck the economy into some theoretical capitalist orgy of laissez-faire cum-dodging and rectal prolapses.

  • So the touch input is out of calibration and you've found the sweet spot between the two inputs. Now if you're dumb enough to actually commit the vote with the wrong candidate selected, you win the liberal trifecta.

    • @the29car I'm thinking Romney will take both and maybe the Senate too. Obummer has fucked too many people too many times. The media keeps it positive but he is a footnote in history. I wish Colin Powell had run. Same wishy-washy leftie bullshit but at least that guy had a lifetime of experience to fall back on as opposed to a drug-dealing affirmative action hire.

  • Fake. This asswipe has his other finger just off the screen and already toggled to Romney. That's why the chickenshit chose to narrow the camera view. I voted using the same format. The screen isn't as small as this douchebag wants you to believe. Also, ask yourself why he opted to stop recording and not include the "conversation" he had with the volunteer. Pure. Fabricated.Bullshit.

  • With paper ballot there no problem like that. But anyway, I wish all American a good election night, no matter who you are voting for. Voting is the purest form of expressing the strength of democracy. I hope for a high turnout, so I invite all of you to vote, because each vote is important. Good luck and no matter who win, please try to work together for a better future for ALL AMERICAN!

  • It really DOES NOT MATTER who becomes President! Both Repubs and Dems are beholden to their corporate masters. Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Super PACs, lobbyists, and mega corporate influence, such as never seen before, have tainted our political process and democracy in general! The sad part is that the masses/sheeple continue to sleep...
