Trying to Vote for Obama but getting Clinton instead in New Jersey!

suse's diary :: ::
My husband and I went to vote for Obama this morning in South Jersey. Our precinct has only recently changed from the old voting machines to new touch machines.

He went into the machine and noticed that there was a red X listed next to Clinton. He pushed the X next to Obama and while he was looking for the button to push to record his vote, the X for Obama disappeared and the red X for Clinton came on again.  So he complained to the poll worker and then went ahead and pushed Obama and then quickly pushed the Vote button before it could reset to Clinton.

We called the Obama folks to let them know.

Who knows who you are voting for when there is no paper trail.

LOL!!!!! Yeah and I read on the internet ...

That there are these pills than make a guys thingy grow 4 inches!!!

Amazing!

Maybe that voter was just confused and pushing the wrong buttons ... remember Obama said he had to change some of his votes in the IL Senate but those pesky buttons were a tad confusing and he pressed the wrong ones sometimes.

Re: New Jersey Vote

In every election, there will be some people who say crazy things.  This is a country where about 20 percent believe in UFO's and people being abducted by aliens.  Since most people in USA believe in God, she should just think that God is changing her vote for her.  After all, He moves in "mysterious ways."

Re: New Jersey Vote

I voted in NJ for Obama this morning with the touch screen machines.  No problem whatsoever.

Re: New Jersey Vote

Yeah - and I tried to vote for Obama in NY and was immediately sucked through a hole in the space-time continuum and ended up in Howard Wolfson's brain.  No frickin' paper trail there either.

Re: New Jersey Vote

Dear Gunslinger:

I read that post too, in the Daily KOS.  I believe it also because sometimes machines really do screw up.  I just resent the implication that Hillary is somehow involved.

I hope the person who experienced the malfunction reported it to both local officials, as well as the Fed. Election Commission.  I don't see point in reporting it to Obama camp.  It should be reported to objective, authoritative source.

I, too, voted NJ, with no problems.
