2012 Voting Machines Altering Votes
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.
Some guy on my facebook made the status
“Some girls are just so….. shallow these days… ugh… they should really start stepping their sights up and look for the part of the male population that actually have dreams, ambitions, respect, and an education… because twenty, heck ten years from now,…
So apparently I’m doing it wrong. It’s either find a guy that can pay my bills for me, or pay my guy’s bills as well as my own. Here I was thinking that I was going to go off and be a big girl and pay for my own shit. #woops
Guys responding like that raise a red flag. Ugh.
Read and reblog please.
Just, whta the fuck? Fail. So much fail.
