    Nevada Voters Complain Of Problems At Polls

    Nevada Voters Complain Of Problems At Polls

    LAS VEGAS -- Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County's electronic voting machines.

    Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked.

    Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

    "Something's not right," Ferrara said. "One person that's a fluke. Two, that's strange. But several within a five minute period of time -- that's wrong."

    Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.

    "Especially in a community with elderly citizens (they have) difficulty in (casting their) ballot," Lomax said. "Team leaders said there were complaints (and the) race filled in."

    At any time, voters can go back on the screen and review their selections. They are also allowed to make changes and encouraged to double-check their ballot on screen and on paper before it is cast.

    Lomax said voters need to have faith in the system.

    "This election, I think, more than ever," he said. "The two sides are very fractured and each side is suspicious and we're caught in the middle."

    The Clark County Registrar of Voters should have just admitted there was a problem with the machines instead of blaming the people this happened to.

    I would like to see this investigated a little more to see if the machines were set up like that.

    Something is just not right.

    Funny how you missed that she probably lingered to long or forgot to double check her cast ballot. These computerized voting machines are very sensitive to the touch which mean she probably touched the area near Harry Reid's name and thought she had touched the area near Angles. This is why I double check every thing before I cast my vote at the polls.

    I think this is a first.

    I agree that this for now is a non issue. Living in Florida I can say with certainty some of the elderly do need a little help with the voting machine.

    Funny how you missed where she said it happened to 5 people.

    Do you have the same explanation for them too?

    Where did it say that Joyce Ferrara was elderly?

    I suppose they deserve the same respect as the voters that voted for Buchanan on the butterfly ballot in FL in 2000.

    Actually, it said...

    It was a warning not to linger, not a supposition of what the complainant probably did.

    yeah, but that excuse sounded good enough to quell suspicion for now. I wonder if this Lomax guy is part of the SoS program?

    Actually, from the looks of things he is explicating what was going on with the person voting machine, and not just put up a warring as you said he did Whovia.

    And may I ask are you a star trek fan Whovia?
