Magic Vote Changing Machines Come to West Virginia

The Charleston Gazette in Charleston, West Virginia has a story about West Virginia electronic machines where a voter casts a ballot for Obama but registers a vote for McCain:

Three Putnam County voters say electronic voting machines changed their votes from Democrats to Republicans when they cast early ballots last week.

This is the second West Virginia county where voters have reported this problem. Last week, three voters in Jackson County told The Charleston Gazette their electronic vote for “Barack Obama” kept flipping to “John McCain”.

The Gazette observes that the two counties where problems have occurred have Republican oversight of voting.  The Republicans in those counties decline to address the problem; instead, they blame voter errors.

The Republicans have played their little reindeer games now in two election cycles.  We’re all on to their little bag of tricks.  If they think we’ll sit back and let them steal a third national election, they should seek psychiatric assistance.  Not even our obtuse and all-forgiving media seems to be missing the shenanigans.

    they’re going to try to steal it (again). I think most of us anticipated garbage like this, but somehow it’s still shocking to read.

  2. Not that long ago a Simpsons short was making the round of Homer trying to vote Obama but it keeps getting changed to McCain and eventually the voting machine kills him. (looks like the YT clip has been yanked)
