Second Battleground State To Have Voting Machine Issues--posted by Tony Garcia on 11/01/2012
Last week there reports in Florida that voting machines were registering Obama even though people were selecting Romney. Oh, the machines are fine and there is nothing to worry about was the word.
Now same is happening in Ohio.
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.Something tells me that we may be hearing a lot more of this in more battleground states.
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.
