The video made by a Lewisburg resident showing the voting machine malfunction in Union County got national media attention: the malfunction was listed as part of CNN.com’s list of voting snags.
Here’s the CNN article.
The mix-up also made Mother Jones’ list of voting snafus,
which you can see here.
Heres my problem with their coverage of this: I wouldn’t say that it was voter suppression or some form of hacking as Mother Jones seems to suggest, it seems like a voting machine malfunction at its purest form.
Apparently, the membranes of many machines were malfunctioning and needed to be recalibrated.
It happened in Perry County as CNN says
and in York County as well.
It seems like this was a technical issue that could have been putting votes for any candidate, it just happened to be calibrated to go from Obama to Romney.
What do you think?
