Apparently some voting machines in Texas have been allegedly changing Trump votes to ones for Hillary. According to this “Fox & Friends” report, election officials are blaming “user error” and not some giant rigged election conspiracy:

But a local elections official told Yahoo News that there was little reason to be alarmed. Shannon Lackey, the elections coordinator for Randall County, said the county’s Hart Voting System was 10 years old but is “working exactly as it was designed to do.”
“It undergoes rigorous testing,” she said. “It is state and federal certified.”
“I believe 100 percent in our equipment. I have done this for 10 years. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t believe in it,” Lackey said. “Every person that works in this office has had a background check. It is done in a room that does not have Internet ports.”
Lackey said Houlette, the voter, likely hit a button she did not intend.
“I don’t believe there was any malicious intent on anyone’s part, the voter or ours. I think it was human error,” Lackey said.
Even Snopes has gotten involved, attributing the problems to user error as well:
No, Texas voting machines are not switching Trump votes to Clinton. Expect to see a lot of these hoaxes. https://t.co/5I1wz81nJn
