|Is the machine working?|
While campaigning in Dayton, Ohio, Mitt Romney has gotten serious criticism from the liberal agitators and others in the media. He decided to do his "relief rally" in a swing state. Of course, he also went onto attacking the president for being a "weak" leader and the such. Also the local media also denounced Mitt Romney's latest ad claiming that Chrysler's Jeep division is shipping jobs to China.
Early voting is off to a good start for the president and his Republican challenger. Many Americans rather just get this race over with. But somehow shenanigans are afoot? Conservatives are in an uproar over a woman's claim that the voting machine in Marion, Ohio flip for President Barack Obama after she chose Mitt Romney.
For one thing, I live in Ohio and I had a paper ballot! I used a black pen and filled a circle! I don't know how she got an opportunity to operate a voting machine in her area? But I think this is a non-story because I am guessing this person is an older White voter who refused to get help when operating a voting machine.
Second, the machine does work correctly. She was either doing something wrong, or she wanted to create some phony outrage to give Mitt Romney an advantage. After all the state of Ohio is the epicenter of this election.
Third, if you need help in voting, get someone to help you! It's not hard!
The Marion Star had an article about this situation and the gay conservative agitator Matt Drudge splashed it on his website around 10am. The conservative media picked up on it! Rush Limbaugh, Weasel Zippers, Fox News, Sean Hannity, and others were talking about it.
But of course, I'm talking about it too! Why?
Because they're trying to undermine the vote (yet again, trying to keep lower income, minorities, and young voters away from the polls).
The Marion Star reported, Joan Stevens was one of several early voters at the polls on Monday. But when Stevens tried to cast her ballot for president, she noticed a problem.
Upon selecting “Mitt Romney” on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up.
It took Stevens three tries before her selection was accurately recorded.
“You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” Stevens said.
|It's almost over!|
Stevens also reported the issue to Sophia Rogers, the director of the board of elections for Marion County.
Rogers said the machine worked fine when she and others tried voting on it. No one else had reported problems with the voting machines malfunctioning.
Rogers suggested the issue may have been caused by not hitting the button directly or tapping with more than one finger. Stevens was aware the machine had to be operated a certain way.
“I know how to do the voting,” Stevens said.
Despite no problems with that particular machine, Rogers decided to take all precautions. She contacted the vendor and had them inspect the device.
“Because of her issue, we had that machine recalibrated,” Rogers said. “I am certain the equipment works properly.”
Rogers said that those still skeptic about using the electronic stations have the option of filling out a paper ballot, even voting from home and mailing via absentee ballot.
These are final days before Election Day. Don't think this is over until they declare a winner!
Help Barack Obama win the White House. Put an end to the madness created by those in the conservative media. Stand up to the Republicans and their allies who are trying to suppress your vote and your voice.
