Voting Machine Problems

At least three voters have reported that voting machines used in West Virginia refused votes for Obama. The votes were automatically switched to McCain. When the fault was reported, the poll worker in charge "responded that everything was all right. It was just that the screen was sensitive"...

Meanwhile in Florida, voting machines broke down on the first day of voting: frustrated with all the breakdowns of the machines," Westside voter John Lord said. "How long have they had to had this all fixed and ready to go and they knew it was an important election and that there would be a big turnout."

Another troubling story: according to Huffington Post, McCain is employing a GOP operative accused of voter registration fraud.

Not all news are bad though. CQ Politics reports that this year, 59 % of voters will cast their ballots using optical scan voting systems. This means that paper-based voting will be used in most counties. To find out what equipments different states will be using for the 2008 elections, visit
