Whoa: Voting machines in Ohio, NC, Nev. switching Romney votes to votes for Obama

Hmm. Where are those U.N. voting inspectors now? There are reports of voting machines in Ohio that are recording Romney votes as Obama votes.

More from WBTW News 13:

The Marion Star in Ohio reported this was happening to many early voters on Monday. The problem happened to many people at a polling station last week in Guilford County, WGHP-TV reported.

A woman named Joan Stevens had the problem happen three times before her selection for Mitt Romney actually was recorded, the newspaper reported.

“You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” Stevens told the newspaper.

Where are the screams of voter suppression when people’s votes are actually suppressed by not being recorded? The machines were allegedly “recalibrated” to fix this problem that is conveniently happening in the battleground state of Ohio. But, not so fast. It seems as if similar problems are happening in another battleground state: North Carolina.

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.

STORY UPDATE: Similar problems reported in Jamestown and Pleasant Garden.

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.

Unbelievable, yet completely believable. Fraudulent Votes ‘R Us, should be the Democrat motto. And, guess what? Another swing state, Nevada, is having similar problems.

More from PolitiChicks:

“Yesterday I went to an early voting site at Centennial Center in Las Vegas, NV. I went with my 19 year old son who was a first-time voter. I went to an open machine and inserted my card. When the selections came up, all of the candidate pairings were listed and I touched the box for Romney/Ryan. The checkmark appeared next to President Obama’s name. I touched the check mark removing it and touched the box next to Romney’s name again. Again, the checkmark appeared next to Obama. I motioned for an observer to come over and showed him. I touched the mark next to Obama, removing it and again touched Romney’s name. The checkmark appeared next to Obama.”

This is an outrage, and they don’t appear to just be isolated incidents. And some Twitter users are reporting similar experiences.

Other Twitter users offer some advice.

Check your ballot. And then check again. The stakes are high and the potential for fraud is clearly there. It’s the Chicago Way and all.
