I hope that we are able to stay on top of what looks to be a long two weeks of attempted election fraud. Hot off of the presses from Politichicks:
PolitiChicks.tv has just received confirmation that a voter in Las Vegas tried voting for Governor Mitt Romney but the machine automatically checked “Obama” multiple times instead.
Our source said:
“Yesterday I went to an early voting site at Centennial Center in Las Vegas, NV. I went with my 19-year-old son who was a first-time voter. I went to an open machine and inserted my card. When the selections came up, all of the candidate pairings were listed and I touched the box for Romney/Ryan. The check mark appeared next to President Obama’s name. I touched the check mark removing it and touched the box next to Romney’s name again. Again, the check mark appeared next to Obama. I motioned for an observer to come over and showed him. I touched the mark next to Obama, removing it and again touched Romney’s name. The check mark appeared next to Obama. At this point, the gentleman next to me was looking over my partition to see. I touched the check mark, again removing it from Obama’s name and selected Romney. The check mark appeared next to Romney. I double-checked the paper ballot to ensure that Romney was indeed selected and cast my ballot. I didn’t make a fuss but have called our local election department only to get recordings. I also wrote an email to the Clark County Election Department about the incident. My son said that he had no issues casting his ballot.”
I called the Las Vegas GOP office but haven’t gotten a response from anyone about this yet.
Please folks, check and re-check your ballots before turning them in. A similar case was reported earlier today in North Carolina.
