A Moline, Illinois man filmed his votes on an electronic voting machine erroneously switching to the Democrat candidate after he had selected his preferred Republican candidate.
The man explains that he had heard about the machines having problems on the news and decided to film when it started happening to him. The clip shows the error happening in two separate categories.
Some who have watched the video posted to YouTube say the man’s fingers are touching too high on the display and therefore he is to blame for the error. Slow motion frames are included in the video for added clarity. Perhaps the angle of the camera lends to the uncertainty.
County Clerk Karen Kinney, as indicated in the video, assured that “there is nothing wrong” and believes because only Republicans are complaining, it must be a part of some larger conspiracy. She also cites “human error” — recalling a woman with “three-inch long fingernails” complaining that her GOP votes were switching to Democrat.
However, this is not the first complaint of its kind. Another Illinois county experienced the same problem in its local library Monday.
