10. didn't seem to have vote flipping on Nov 2 in North Carolina
there was vote flipping when voters picked straight ticket for GOP, the vote would
flip to DEM ticket.

On Oct 20, NC SBoE began telling counties to calibrate touchscreens EACH DAY of early voting.
This is 6 days into early voting, by the way.

Then judge ordered touchscreen counties to (on Nov 2) post warnings about the machines and urge voters to check summary screens.

There seem to be little or no reports of touchscreens flipping votes on Nov 2.

Perhaps counties should have known to calibrate machines each day of voting, which is about 2 1/2
weeks in NC.

We had scattered but few reported problems in NC, incidents are lower this year than in 2008 by far,
and then WAY lower than in 2004, when NC led the nation in election problems.
