These don’t appear to be isolated reports. Having one or two machines “glitch” is one thing. Having that many in such a short period of time either indicates a fraudulent election or a horrible execution of the technology.
Harry Reid is a better than even chance to lose to Sharron Angle, but that doesn’t matter if the election can be rigged. In this case, voters reported going to vote only to see Harry Reid’s name already selected.
Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked.
Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.
"Something's not right," Ferrara said. "One person that's a fluke. Two, that's strange. But several within a five minute period of time -- that's wrong."
Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.
"Especially in a community with elderly citizens (they have) difficulty in (casting their) ballot," Lomax said. "Team leaders said there were complaints (and the) race filled in."
The Registrar’s explanation is unconvincing.
One positive to come of this in early voting—people are mindful that their votes may be compromised and they’re reporting problems. Ripping away the shroud and casting light on the election process makes the SEIU and ACORN thugs scatter like so many cockroaches.
