Voting Machines in Kansas and Ohio Change Romney Votes to Obama Votes


Early voting seems to have a purpose after all-to discover that voting machines are changing Romney votes into Obama votes.  As if by magic, of course.  the Lonely Conservative has more…

Has anyone heard of any instances of voting machines erring on the side of Mitt Romney? I haven’t. Everything I’ve heard is about voting machines changing votes for Romney into votes for Obama. It’s still going on.

According to the Marion Star, early voter Joan Stevens tried to cast her ballot for Mitt Romney, but the machine kept defaulting to Barack Obama.

“Upon selecting ‘Mitt Romney’ on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up,” the Star reported, adding that it took Stevens three attempts before the correct vote would register.

“You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” she said.

The Blaze reported Wednesday that a voter in Topeka, Kansas, also had problems casting her ballot for Mitt Romney.

A woman identified only as Nancy reportedly told The Blaze that “while her husband was casting a vote for Romney, the touchscreen highlighted Obama.”

“He played around with the field a little and realized that in order to vote for Romney, his finger had to be exactly on the mark,” she said in an email.

“She said ‘the invisible Obama field came down about 1/4 [of an inch]‘ into what should technically have been the Romney area. In a phone interview with TheBlaze, she explained further that her husband said he felt the area on the touchscreen that could be pushed to vote for Obama was larger than that for Romney,” Liz Klimas wrote.

Here’s one hint for election day.  Make sure that before you confirm your choices, make sure that you are voting for the actual candidate of your choice. And, I think it bears repeating that no machine has been said to have turned Obama Votes into Romney votes.

Just sayin…

  • Democrats are dirty rotten scoundrels using tactics like this. The primary way Dems win elections is by stealing them.

  • I have heard that the Obama button is much bigger than the Romney button on some of these machines and unless you touch it perfectly it registers as Obama. In my town we still have paper and sharpies and sometimes I wonder if simpler isn’t better.

  • Democrats getting more time in all four debates. Voting machine errors. All in favor of Democrats.


    You know if one voting machine, somewhere, goes in favor of Romney one time… The left will go apoplectic.

    And, of course, will claim we should hand over the election to Obama because of the systematic fraud by conservatives. Who are racists BTW…

  • Maybe they are just trying to make the Obama button as large as his ears.

  • We’ve learned the hard way that this sort of deceit is no coincidence.

    There were a bunch of machines sent out by multiple companies with untested patches on them. Most of these issues are related to the configuration of the touch screen. If when the patch is applied an error happens some of the fields register too large. If you find a machine like this its your duty as a citizen to call this out. There have been cases in multiple counties in Michigan, Florida and Ohio where this is happening to multiple candidates in multiple tickets, not just the president and not just for one party. Votes are registering wrong in both directions. We should be asking the people in charge of the election machines why this untested software was so essential but wasn’t certified or tested.
