Friday night, KFDM reported about people who had cast straight Democratic ticket ballots, but the touch-screen machines indicated they had voted a straight Republican ticket. […]
Saturday, KFDM spoke to another voter who says it’s not just happening with straight ticket voting, he says it’s happening on individual races as well, Jerry Stopher told us when he voted for a Democrat, the Republican’s name was highlighted.
Stopher said, “There’s something in these machines, in this equipment, that’s showing Republican votes when you vote for Democrats, and I know Ms. Guidry’s a nice lady, and she’s working hard, but her theory that my fingernail was somehow over the Republican button is just unrealistic, my fingernail was not. The equipment is not working properly as far as I can tell.”
This kind of shit makes me furious because we’re completely powerless over this inferior technology. This kind of shit could literally swing close races, and that’s so wrong it’s almost criminal.
