>>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.
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
>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.
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.
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)
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
>>38182231 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. > Expecting us this to believe voting machines are the only devices where touch screen fuck up, instead of this being a flat out fraud, like Romney not getting a single vote in certain precincts during the 2010 election.
