Received this email about six hours ago. The problem happened Saturday.
I just wanted to share that when I pressed my vote for Trump, the touch-screen automatically selected Clinton. It took me several times to get the machine to “unselect” Clinton and get the machine to select my intended vote of Trump. This also happened for a few of the other selections I made, with the machine always making the error in the upper-left portion of the touch screen.
I was able to make all my selections, but I did report it. I was told that they already knew about it. This happened at the voting machine at Huntley’s part district on Saturday, November 5, 2016, around 9:15 a.m.
My concern is that Huntley has a large senior citizen population, as well as some first-time voters, and knowing this, what if these folks aren’t able to catch the errors and the machine votes for someone other than the voter’s intention?
Why wasn’t this machine taken out of the voting process, especially knowing there had been a “known” problem?
