It’s not even Nov. 6 yet, and voting problems are already here. At an electronic ballot machine in North Carolina, a crucial State in this year’s race, a vote for Republican challenger Mitt Romney shows up as a vote for President Barack Obama.
Early voters in Gulford County noticed that when they pulled their vote for Romney, the machine registered the vote for the President. It happened at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.
“I was so upset that this could happen,” said voter Sher Coromalis.
But Guilford County says the problem is not something out of the ordinary. The machine just needs to be recalibrated.
“It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” said Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert.
Election officials claim that the problem has been fixed, and no additional complaints have been voiced.
“I should have just mailed it in,” concluded Coromalis, who eventually got her vote for Romney counted correctly.
