ALERT To North Carolina Early Voters
Reports are out today in Guilford County that there are some irregularities taking place with voting machines. Sher Coromalis, an early voter, cast her vote for Romney as President in the voting booth at the Bur-Mil voting location in Burlington, NC. The vote registered as being a vote cast for President Obama. Ms. Coromalis stated that she had to cast her vote three times before it indicated her choice for Romney. Several other voters have made similar complaints.
The Guilford County Board of Elections has stated that this is an equipment malfunction that occurs when the voting equipment is in need of recalibration.
For those who remember it, the state of NC ran into similar problems in 2008, but there was no way at that time to prove any gross or deliberate negligence on the part of election board staff.
Just a few words of wisdom for NC early voters…
If you intend to vote for Romney as President, you can not choose the “straight Republican ticket” option that displays on the voting equipment panel. You have to select the option that allows you to vote for the candidates at each level of the state election in order for your vote for a Republican as President to be confirmed.
When you get to the end of choosing your individual candidates, the equipment panel will then display a list of all the selections you have made. Check this screen carefully before selecting the “submit” or “confirm” option to ensure that your choices have been displayed properly.
If you or someone you know sees any inaccuracies or inconsistencies being displayed in voting outcomes, report those outcomes immediately before you leave the voting site.
