Voting machines could bring Election Day glitches

U.S. election watchdogs are concerned about the accuracy of electronic voting. About half of voters will use optical-scan systems; one-third will use touch screens. Several states report incidents where touch-screen machines registered wrong votes. Electronic-voting system advocates say their equipment is secure and accurate. Anyone worried about these machines? Or that your vote won't be accurate? Double check before hitting that cast vote button!

I'm always concerned about election voting and accuracy. After all, the electronic voting machines are built by a company which supports the Republicans.

I think the whole thing is rigged anyway. Once they switched from actual paper ballots and real people counting them, the "election" turned into a farce. I sincerely believe that it doesn't matter who you vote for, those electronic machines are going to have "glitches" in favor of the winner. It's just a matter of who is pulling the strings of the poll "volunteers".

Last election there was a glitch here with a machine at one of the voting stations here. It didn't register votes for like the first hour or so of voting. Caused them to challenge the race for some local seat because the race had a five vote difference and something like seven people had voted at that machine during the first hour of voting. But what's a voting machine glitch on top of questionable voter registrations, voter fraud, dropping people of the lists even though they should be on there.... and we'll handcount ballots again anyway. I'm originally from Germany. My relatives are all making fun of it already. Something like that has not happened there. We here in the US can't get the voting process right in regard to voter registration and vote counting... yet we want to send observers to all of those countries where fraud is a suspected possibility and teach people there how to do it right... kind of ironic, isn't it?
