Ohio machine changes woman's vote to Obama, again and again...
Paper ballots encouraged.
Reports are coming in that voters may have issues with voting machines in Marion County, Ohio. Local media is reporting that Joan Stevens, a registered voter, was attempting to use a voting machine to cast her ballot for Mitt Romney when the machine kept changing her selection to Barack Obama.
The matter was eventually sorted out and the machine recalibrated.
Stevens was able to vote for her candidate of choice.
According to elections officials there, it now works properly. No other anomalies are being reported at this time.
The issue at hand is the accuracy and reliability of the machines, which could become a decisive factor in next Tuesday's elections. With the election expected to be very close, a few anomalies could throw the matter into disarray.
Many voters still remember the nightmare caused in 2000 when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by a slim margin in Florida after a recount of that state's ballots.
Concerned voters are welcome to cast traditional, paper ballots and may also vote from home using an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots can then be mailed to elections officials or may even be hand-delivered to a polling station on Election Day.
Voters across the nation are expected to use electronic voting machines across the country. Voters are advised to check their selections carefully and to review their receipts if provided. Any anomalies or difficulties should be immediately reported to elections officials.
Perhaps the safest bet for now may be to stick with a traditional paper ballot, no matter where you live.
