Undernews: Another Day Of Broken Vote Machines

Another Election Day, Another Day Of Broken Vote Machines


From Undernews, compiled by Prorev.com Editor Sam Smith

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER - Voters throughout the county reported malfunctioning voting machines and technical glitches Tuesday afternoon. Shirley Filadelfia said none of the voting machines were working at her voting site, the San Juan Capistrano Community Center at noon. She said there were paper ballots available for Democrats, but none for Republicans. She asked the poll workers to call her when the machines were fixed. "There's some voting irregularities -- only the Democrats were being allowed to vote," she said. "My concern is how many people went there today and weren't allowed to vote because of this.". . .

Lee Demson in Seal Beach also said voting machines were broken at his site. Machines at his voting site were functioning perfectly, until the paper record printing on the side wouldn't show how he voted on Measure A. "I'm just a computer geek that happened to vote and I tried reading the print and Measure A wasn't coming up," Demson said. "It lists your yes or no and who you voted for. But on Measure A, there was nothing from Measure A." He wound up voting on a paper ballot, because the machines had to be shut off for repairs. . .

Cori Tanner opened up the voting station in a residential garage in Coto de Caza and was operating by herself for most of the morning. Tanner, a veteran poll worker who has helped out during elections for ten years doubts she'd ever work the polls again. . .
