Early Reports of Electronic Voting Machines Flipping Votes

Early monitoring of voting around the country is raising concerns about electronic voting machines in key battleground states — especially in Pennsylvania, where machines are registering Democratic votes instead of Republican, and vice versa.

According to Pamela Smith, who heads the Election Protection Command Center, a national non-profit, non-partisan vote monitoring organization, early results from volunteers around the country and from voters who call a toll-free number (1-866 OUR VOTE) show that reports of vote flipping and other problems are already severe enough to “cause concern.”

Smith said problems with iVotronic machines have cropped up in Pennsylvania’s Lawrence County, where voters trying to vote a straight party ticket registered their votes for another party – in essence, flipping the votes.

In these cases, voters tap one spot on the touch screen and another lights up. “It is like when you use an ATM and hit withdraw and check balances lights up,” said Susan Greenhalgh of Verified Voting, a nonprofit organization that advocates reliable and publicly verifiable elections.

“In one case a voter called the poll worker in to help, and neither could get the machine to vote properly,” Smith said.

Minnesota County Investigating Voter Fraud Allegations Involving Mentally Disabled

Minnesota officials are investigating a citizen’s allegations that mentally disabled voters in one county were coached by their attendants to cast their ballots for specific candidates, a county attorney told FoxNews.com.

Montgomery Jensen, a voter in Crow Wing County, says he and his wife saw a group of mentally incapacitated individuals ushered through the voting process by mental health staff, who told some of the group who they should vote for and, in some cases, filled out ballots on their behalf, according to an affidavit filed with the county attorney’s office on Monday, a copy of which was obtained by FoxNews.com.

Jensen suggested that the county officials processing the ballots were aware that some had been cast by mentally incapacitated people who may not be legally eligible to vote.

“The whole issue here is that someone was filling out their ballots and it looked to me like they had no idea what they were doing or what was going on,” Jensen told FoxNews.com.
