    ‘Calibration error’ changes GOP votes to Dem in Illinois county

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014...linois-county/

    " CHICAGO — Early voting in Illinois got off to a rocky start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.

    Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.


    “I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

    Nah, voter fraud is a " myth "...

    Fourth thread, and it is not voter fraud, it is machine error, just like when machines changed Obama votes to Romney votes. It is an issue with touch screen voting machines.

    Democrats saying it is machine means they got caught in their voter fraud

    It has happened before. Note in the video(it is only 18 seconds, watch it) who benefited.



    The issue is with the machines. Seriously, if you are going to try and rig an election, are you going to make it so any one can see it happening?

    It was actually very heavily reported on at the time, which is how I knew about it. Pennsylvania voting machine changes Obama vote to Romney [VIDEO]

    These things can happen though. It could be some worker calibrated it wrong on purpose or it was just done incorrectly in error. Ever had a poorly calibrated tablet/phone screen that placed your finger in a spot adjacent to where you were actually touching? It's a real and reasonable error in technology. I wouldn't jump the gun on it as being a massive scandal.

    Well, let's use the handy board search function and find out. Well, it turns out I made the thread on it. It is in archives now so I cannot do a linked quote, but here is a link to the thread: http://www.debatepolitics.com/2012-u...ne-errors.html

    The first line of my post:

    First let me say I do not think this is fraud or anything like that, it is just a tech problem.
