2012 Voting Machines Altering Votes in Pennsylvania

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work....

 

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode...

Madison Blazing's comment, March 28, 2014 10:12 AM
This was very interesting and also kind of concerning. Hopefully the government fixes the issues with these machines so that there are not future problems with the polls. I agree with Nick that this man seems to know what he is discussing because of his credentials in the software industry. This is definitely an issue if people are unable to register their votes correctly, and if this occurs on a large scale, elections could be drastically altered. This problem seems like one that needs to be addressed and fixed before it inhibits any more people from casting the correct vote.
Rachel DeWaard's curator insight, May 7, 2014 9:06 PM

This video shows how a voting poll could be changed due to software malfunctions. During the 2012 election, a voting machine in Pennsylvania highlighted Mitt Romney when the voter clicked on Obama. To me, things like this are bound to happen as voting techniques become more advanced. This shows how a election may not be accurate due to technological malfunctions. 

Breanne Hemann's comment, May 11, 2014 12:02 AM
I agree that this is a major issue that could have negative effects. I think that voting machines can be very effective, however if there are significant flaws they may not be the best to use until they are fixed.
