    Some early W.Va. voters angry over switched votes

    October 18, 2008 - At least three early voters in Jackson County had a hard time voting for candidates they want to win.

    Virginia Matheney and Calvin Thomas said touch-screen machines in the county clerk's office in Ripley kept switching their votes from Democratic to Republican candidates.

    "When I touched the screen for Barack Obama, the check mark moved from his box to the box indicating a vote for John McCain," said Matheney, who lives in Kenna.

    When she reported the problem, she said, the poll worker in charge "responded that everything was all right. It was just that the screen was sensitive and I was touching the screen too hard. She instructed me to use only my fingernail." Even after she began using her fingernail, Matheney said, the problem persisted. . .

    What bullsheet. Either use paper ballots or get a receipt, otherwise its corrupt and we are the biggest hypocrites when we preach to non-democracies.
