Miami Herald: Glitches cited in early voting
snip>
Election officials say they aren't aware of any serious voting issues.....

Debra A. Reed voted with her boss on Wednesday at African-American Research Library and Cultural Center near Fort Lauderdale. Her vote went smoothly, but boss Gary Rudolf called her over to look at what was happening on his machine. He touched the screen for gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis, a Democrat, but the review screen repeatedly registered the Republican, Charlie Crist.
...
Joan Marek, 60, a Democrat from Hollywood, was also stunned to see Charlie Crist on her ballot review page after voting on Thursday. ''Am I on the voting screen again?'' she wondered. ``Well, this is too weird.''
...
Mauricio Raponi wanted to vote for Democrats across the board at the Lemon City Library in Miami on Thursday. But each time he hit the button next to the candidate, the Republican choice showed up. Raponi, 53, persevered until the machine worked. Then he alerted a poll worker.

3. .
Ah all these coincidence that it's always a vote for the Dem that somehow switches the party. Nothing's wrong with electronic voting..duh.
For god's sake, get rid of them finally! We have absolutely no fucking idea what's going on inside the machine even if it shows the right candidate.

4. The constant refrain from the Repukes is
"Why is this only happening to Democrats? Because Dem voters are too stupid to work the machines ..."

Repeat in (FL) 2000, (OH) 2004, (damn near everywhere) 2006 ...

Of course, the heavily Repugniconvicts areas are not needing to skew the vote, so the machines are not "screwing up" ...
