Texas machines now flipping votes from Democrats to Republicans

Holy cow -- first Florida, now Texas:

KFDM continues to get complaints from Jefferson County voters who say the electronic voting machines are not registering their votes correctly.

Friday night, KFDM reported about people who had cast straight Democratic ticket ballots, but the touch-screen machines indicated they had voted a straight Republican ticket...[and] Saturday, KFDM spoke to another voter who says it's not just happening with straight ticket voting, he says it's happening on individual races as well.

Here's the thing: I know this is a relatively new technology (even though we've had at least two years to roll it out). I also know that there can be problems with calibration on touch-screens. For example, every time I turn on my Treo cell-phone after deplaning, I have to re-calibrate its touch-screen.

But, gosh -- are there ANY reports out there about Republican votes being flipped to Democratic ones?


While you're pondering that question, please remember to be careful when you vote next week. If you are in a district that uses e-voting machines, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR VOTE COUNTS. Double- and triple-check that the e-voting machine tabulates your vote accurately before you leave the voting booth.
