    The Sun Journal reported:
    A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.
    Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.
    “They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”
    M. Ray Wood, Craven County Board of elections chairman, issued a written statement saying that the elections board is aware of isolated issues and that in each case the voter was able to cast his or her ballot as desired.
    Chuck Tyson, chairman of Craven County GOP, remains skeptical. He has been communicating with Wood about the issue and was invited to a meeting Wednesday with state elections officials. There were no further details about that meeting.
    “Something is not right here,” Tyson told the Sun Journal. He said he “got two or three calls” from people describing the same problem while they were voting.
    “I’ll be matter of fact, I didn’t find that press release satisfactory,” Tyson said, referring to Wood’s written statement.
    Tyson reported other problems as well, including long lines waiting for just two voting machines in Havelock, and machines reporting 250 ballots cast where 400 voters had signed in to vote.

    Must be more stupid GOP voters that don't understand how to use the newfangled tech.:cool:
    BTW
    There are two companies that make voting machines. One of them is owned by a staunch Obamabot.

    In Chicago close to a half million voters may be disenfranchised because the company hired to handle the vote by mail ballots sent the ballots to late to be returned on time and messed up birthdates so they don’t match records. . . .
    I sure am glad that the gubmint is on this health-care thing..........:lol:

    That's not a very friendly way to have a conversation. That's why nobody takes you seriously.

    Another incident of voting machine irregularities was also reported yesterday in North Carolina. A voter said he pushed the button for a straight-party Republican ticket and the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. The problem was reported in two different counties.


    I wonder when Afghanistan will voice their concern over US voting fraud and irregularities.

    This is being reported in nevada as well. Regardless of the vote, the #'s are reportedly going to Reid. Guess who services the machines. SEIU members! But they swear the machines are working properly.

    I agree that paper is the best way, but we must cut trees down to do paper.
    :doubt:
