Vote Fraud? Voting Machine Shows Romney After Voter Chooses Obama

Editor’s note: Read our update — “Fraud? Voting Machine That Changed Obama Votes To Romney Votes Removed From Service

A Pennsylvania Obama voter says he selected Barack Obama when voting this morning but the electronic voting machine showed his selection was Mitt Romney. “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, writes.

This video, below, from journalist David Pakman shows the video, and we’ve obtained the original video the voter, posted to YouTube and the social media site Reddit.


Here are the voter’s comments on the video he posted this morning:

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said “It’s nothing to worry about, everything will be OK.” and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I’m not a video guy, but if it’s possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.

Frightening?

Yes.

What is more frightening is that the monitor didn't immediately shut that machine down and call someone who could take a look at it. I wouldn't have left until that was done. Is this one of the machines owned by that ballot machine company Romney has stock in?
