Pennsylvania Voting Machine Doesn’t Allow Obama Votes
Subscribe to TheFW on
Aaaaaaand the drama begins. This video footage was taken by a man trying to cast a vote for Barack Obama in Pennsylvania (an important swing state). We say “trying” because the machine doesn’t make it particularly possible to actually vote for Obama — every time the man tries, his vote is cast for Romney.
According to the video description, the man complained to the volunteer at his polling station, and she told him not to worry about it. He then decided to film this video, explaining that the only part of the screen that actually allowed him to vote for Obama was the tiny sliver of white space below the button for Obama, and above Jill Stein’s entry.
The video shot to Reddit‘s front page, and quickly spread through the media. According to MSNBC the machine, which was malfunctioning due to a calibration issue, in the video is no longer in use. Anyone notice any similar problems?
