If this video is legit, then it’s disturbing no matter who you want to win. A Pennsylvania voter has uploaded a clip of himself in the voting machine, trying to click the ‘Obama’ button, but shows the Romney box being checked. Let the legal chaos begin.
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW!
The uploader of the video created a youtube account called CENTRALPAVOTE, and explains what happened in his own words: (it is not clear where in Central Pennsylvania this incident allegedly took place.)
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.
The voting machine is manufactured by a company called iVotronic. Where this Pennsylvania voting machine irregularity takes place has yet to be determined.
