it's probably a simple touch-screen problem. I hope they reported it and removed the machine. This problem pops up every election.

we should stop paper ballots and enact an all electronic voting system. one that feeds all of it's data into a single centralized server center. that'll fix everything!

That happens at my post office with their touch-screen. A simple reboot usually fixes the issue.

Calibration issue.

>>38181704
This. Touch-screens are notoriously shitty for needing constant recalibration. Same thing happened to be two years ago, only in reverse (for Republicans instead of Democrats). The poll workers assured me it's a common problem, and takes like a minute for them to fix.

Not cheating, just shit-tier Chinese-made electronics.

>>38181596

he didn't try to press above the top pick, the screen was probably fucked up

you really think that a polling station would allow that shit? If that really happened you can walk over and tell the people there that the station is broken and you can just go to another

imagine what would happen if every five minutes a 45 year old woman could not vote for the person she wanted to

it's a broken machine, and nothing more. If you don't want to risk it on election day and having to interact with the ballot station workers, ask for a mail in ballot and deliver it yourself to your county elections office

i'm pretty sure it recalibrates all the time without you knowing it but I'm just guessing. Hell, every phone unlock movement could be a recal.

this is why electronic machines are shit and why we should have just stuck with regular ballots. Go complain to your county elections office if you want it changed

You're a fucking dumbass shill, the voter shouldn't have to do anything, the machine should work perfectly. You mean to tell me they don't test them before using them? Only a D would defend this shit.

And the same thing was happening somewhere else where the machine autopicked the R, and liberals were CRYING voter fraud.

The reason they're like that is because they're often using the same machines they did in the 90s.
Theyr'e running either some shitty version of windows CE/embedded, or OS/2 .

neither are known for their reliability, but the retards don't think it would be worth it to get new units for something they do once every few years.

http://wavy.com/2014/11/04/several-voters-report-machine-errors-in-hampton-roads/

>VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Department of Elections has confirmed Virginia Beach and Newport News have experienced technical difficulties with the calibration of some touch-screen voting machines, Tuesday.

>According to the state Department of Elections voters have reported having a different selection appear after making their selection. These technical difficulties are being addressed by voting equipment technicians and with the AccuVote vendor. Meanwhile, the machines are being removed from service.

>The Newport News registrar’s office says they have had two precincts where there were calibration issues. The precincts were the Denbigh and Reed. Both machines have been re-calibrated, but have been removed from service. Voters are now using Optical Scan machines at those precincts.

>The department of elections says all voting machines are tested prior to each election, however some machines may need additional calibration after transportation to a precinct.

>U.S. Representative Scott Rigell’s Office reported Tuesday morning they received numerous reports of poll machine irregularities at voting precincts in Virginia’s Second Congressional District.

>U.S. Representative Scott Rigell’s office released the following statement regarding the issue:

We have received numerous, credible reports of poll machine irregularity at voting precincts in Virginia’s Second Congressional District. This is very troubling. It is critical that every voter verifies the final summary page before pushing the “cast ballot” option.

>Rigell’s Office released a video taken with a voter’s cell phone at Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach. The video shows the voter touching the ballot box for Rigell, but the other candidate’s name is checked. Note: It is not against the law in Virginia to use your phone while at the polls, according to the Virginia State Board of Elections.

>>38182047

If it was just a screen callibration issue then it would fuckup when you try to vote for the other candidate as well.

Of course the guy that filmed this never tried to clear the choice and then try different selections or touching above the top name to see what happened.

He is either an idiot that cannot trouble shoot a simple problem, or doing it on purpose to justify throwing a shitfit.

>AccuVote

https://www.usenix.org/legacy/event/evt07/tech/full_papers/feldman/feldman_html/index.html

The main findings of our study are:

1. Malicious software running on a single voting machine can steal votes with little risk of detection. The malicious software can modify all of the records, audit logs, and counters kept by the voting machine, so that even careful forensic examination of these records will find nothing amiss. We have constructed demonstration software that carries out this vote-stealing attack.

2. Anyone who has physical access to a voting machine, or to a memory card that will later be inserted into a machine, can install said malicious software using a simple method that takes as little as one minute. In practice, poll workers and others often have unsupervised access to the machines.

3. AccuVote-TS machines are susceptible to voting-machine viruses—computer viruses that can spread malicious software automatically and invisibly from machine to machine during normal pre- and post-election activity. We have constructed a demonstration virus that spreads in this way, installing our demonstration vote-stealing program on every machine it infects. Our demonstration virus spreads via the memory cards that poll workers use to transfer ballots and election results, so it propagates even if the machines are not networked.

4. While some of these problems can be eliminated by improving Diebold's software, others cannot be remedied without replacing the machines' hardware. Changes to election procedures would also be required to ensure security.

>>38182312

yes it is his fault

it's apparent that the touchscreen on the machine is broken, and that you needed to press above where you want in order to have it register correctly

now since he couldn't do that, he can just go over and inform the poll station workers that his ballot machine is broken, and that he requires a paper ballot (which all polling stations have, because mail-in voters might want to discard their mail ballots at the station and trade it in for a non-defaced ballot)

what about this is hard to understand?

Because it is not a reliable way of collecting valid votes.

you realize paper ballots were what we used to count ballots before 2008 right?

what about paper ballots isn't "reliable" for you

if this is voter fraud then republigoyim did it too

same thing happened to me last year only in reverse
>>
>>38181596
I just used a machine like this in Maryland. It also had some weird quirks where it wouldn't let me choose the last candidate in some cases.

I just pecked it in a different ways until it worked.

Coincidentally, these candidates were the libertarian ones.

We are not talking about paper ballots. We are talking about faulty malfunctioning electronic voting machines rife with glitches. Stop deflecting faglord.
>>
>>38182790

ideally yes but the reality is no

simply put your phone touchscreen is a lot nicer than an embedded touchscreen because apple/samsung/etc are willing to shell out more for parts

same on the software side, most phone companies have better firmware, while embedded things are usually hacked together depending on what company you're at simply because said companies make less money and therefore do not pay as well

yes

if you have a broken ballot machine, electronic or not, you can walk up to a pollworker and demand that you be given a paper ballot and a pen

the machine is taken out of service, and you cast votes like your parents did with a piece of paper

this isn't rocket science

You dumb nigger. We're in 2014. Everybody uses touch screen phones and tablets day in day out. None of these hundreds of millions of devices touch screens ever fuck up. Like, ever.

You're a fucking moran, the machine shouldn't be doing that anyway. The point is it causes false votes.
