Gotta hand it to them, they tried to cheat for Obama

GREENSBORO, N.C. –The Presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a problem in Guilford County. 

On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote.  All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.

Yep, the OLLLLLLLLLLdddd Bur-Mil Park location.

One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote it defaulted to President Obama.

Whaaaaaa?  Why, this IS a mystery ... a real stumper if ever I saw one.

“I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.

Yes, I can imagine.

Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.

Huh?  Re-calibrated?  Is it a voting machine or a scale?  Who makes VOTING machines that can make mistakes?  Seems to me the machine either counts the vote or does not ... but this whole "defaulting" to a particular candidate is idiocy.  Who approved machines/programming with these defects?  Why aren't they in jail?  Is voting some kind of joke to them?

“It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Gilbert said.

No, no, it's not a conspiracy ... nothing to see here, moooooove along now. No more questions, ok, thank you, bye bye now.

After the third try, Coromalis says she was able to get her vote counted for Gov. Romney but was still annoyed.

“I should have just mailed it in,” Coromalis said.

Well, Mrs Cormalis, let me ask you this.  If you can't count on these asshats to have the voting machines prepared when you arrive in person, what makes you think they'll give a damn about  the "calibration" when you aren't right there in their face?  Because all they're going to do is slide your ballot into a vote-counting machine, which, apparently, may or may not be "calibrated."

Elections officials say the machines have been fixed as of Tuesday, and no problems have been reported since.

LOL, yes, they've been "fixed" ... because who thinks to test the machines before election day, right, jackasses?

Yes, they were busted and now are laying low ... hoping nobody thinks to ask about  this "calibration" question.  "Calibration"  Hoooo-weeee.  Seriously?

I'll say this much, I was not aware that voting machines/programming had flaws like this.
