Earlier today The New Civil Rights Movement reported that a Pennsylvania voter had filmed himself selecting Barack Obama for President, but the display on his voting machine screen clearly showed a vote for Mitt Romney.
NBC News just confirmed the story, and adds that the “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.”
“I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine,” the voter, a self-described software engineer, wrote via YouTube.
Voter fraud? Computer glitch? How many more instances of this are there, and what happens to all the votes that machine collected? Too many questions, but if Obama loses Pennsylvania, there’s reason to be concerned.
