In Guilford County, NC some voters have complained that when they chose Mitt Romney for president on electronic voting machines the votes came up for President Obama. One woman tried three times and it kept happening. Election officials say it was just a glitch that’s been corrected, but if you vote on this sort of machine I’d be sure to double check that your vote is counted properly.
The presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a problem in Guilford County.
On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.
One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote the machine defaulted to President Obama.
“I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.
Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.
“It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Gilbert said.
After the third try, Coromalis says she was able to get her vote counted for Gov. Romney but was still annoyed. (Read More)
Another voter had the same problem. I wonder how many votes were incorrectly cast that people didn’t catch.
Notice how Obama votes aren’t “mistakenly” coming up for Romney?
