Voting machine swaps Obama for Romney

MARION — 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.

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.

Stevens also reported the issue to Sophia Rogers, the director of the board of elections for Marion County.

Rogers said the machine worked fine when she and others tried voting on it. No one else had reported problems with the voting machines malfunctioning.

Rogers suggested the issue may have been caused by not hitting the button directly or tapping with more than one finger. Stevens was aware the machine had to be operated a certain way.

“I know how to do the voting,” Stevens said.

Despite no problems with that particular machine, Rogers decided to take all precautions. She contacted the vendor and had them inspect the device.

“Because of her issue, we had that machine recalibrated,” Rogers said. “I am certain the equipment works properly.”

Rogers said that those still skeptic about using the electronic stations have the option of filling out a paper ballot, even voting from home and mailing via absentee ballot.

Voting in-person is open daily to all voters at 222 West Center Street through Election Day on November 6. All qualified Ohio voters can also submit an absentee ballot by filling out a form found at the Marion elections website at marionelections.com

Shut up, scumbag.
You are totally freakin' out there. You want to be mad at Obama because a machine owned by Bain corporation can't properly put forth a vote for Romney for one person. How stupid do the Romney's have to be to develop a voting machine that cheats for the wrong person?

Actually, I read a report that this happened in Kansas too, which is not a swing state. Lends credence to the idea that this is an issue, and not necessarily puposefully done, but an issue nonetheless. I'd be equally disturbed if it went the other way too.

How fuggin' hard is it to fill out a goddam paper ballot? We do that here in Nebraska and our old folks don't seem to have a problem with it...

Nope, I do not live in a swing state and I notice old people not being able to use voting machines every election.

The reports are so few in number that I don't even think it rises to the level of a nonpurposeful issue. More likely than not, it's user error (touching the screen with two fingers instead of one, fat fingering the buttons, making a simple mistake, etc.). If it was a serious machine malfunction (purposeful or not), we'd have heard many more complaints by now, IMO.

Yeah, it's amazing how technologically limited some people are. I coach my mom on her use of her mac and her cell phone and her ipad and she does pretty well, but it's amazing how often I have to reteach her simple basics because she performs tasks by rote memory rather than understanding simple computing concepts like directory structures or contextual menus.
