    I voted! My Montana vote won't mean much on the federal level, but with such a small population, I certainly feel like it's worth it on the local/state level.

    Here in good the good ol' Heart of Dixie my vote can be likened to spitting into a hurricane.

    Is no one concerned about election theft? No? Carry on then.

    I think there will be some Florida and Ohio officials who will be headed to a federal pen, IF Obama has the balls to go after them.

    Machine turns vote for Obama into one for Romney

    Zachary Roth12:52 pm on 11/06/2012




    A Pennsylvania electronic voting machine has been taken out of service after being captured on video changing a vote for President Obama into one for Mitt Romney, NBC News has confirmed.

    The video was first posted on Youtube by user “centralpavoter.” It shows a voter’s finger repeatedly pressing the button for Obama, but a check mark coming up next to Romney’s name:





    NBC News confirmed that the machine has been taken off line.
    Underneath the video, the user gave an account of what happened:
    My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.
    I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
    I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said “It’s nothing to worry about, everything will be OK.” and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.
    There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I’m not a video guy, but if it’s possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.

    I'm sure this man's machine was the only one acting up.

    I voted and got teary eyed when my daughter texted me a pic of her casting her first ever vote!

    We have a lot of really important propositions on the ballot this year. School funding, death penalty, food labeling, etc. I'm mostly voting for those. I'm going after nap-time this afternoon.

    I had to vote in a goddamn church. I know it's just a building, but that just seems so wrong!

    I voted before work today... only had to stand in line for 40 minutes. The people who voted early last week were standing in line for 3+ hours. Suckers! Made the line shorter for us Election Day voters.

    I absentee voted.

    I'm interested to see how this plays out tonight. At the very least, it will all be over and I can quit listening and reading to endless fighting about it. And all the damn political calls will hopefully cease immediately.
