Disturbing story early voters in Kansas Ohio and now North Carolina say they've tried to vote for Mitt Romney but to check went to Obama so.
Is your vote at risk -- bonds -- -- he served on the board of advisors of the US election.
Mission sir thanks for joining us -- -- you just tell us how this might happen.
Well they're using electronic voting machines which are basically touch screen computers similar I pads or the white boards that teachers and students use.
They have to be very carefully calibrated so that the screen image.
Matches up with where you touch the computer screen if it's miss -- line then you're gonna get the kind of problems have been reported OK so.
Let me -- this out -- -- is this is a good that's software glitch.
Or is it something more insidious is it could it be deliberate.
Now it's it's probably.
A -- each each machine has to be carefully tested.
And calibrated to make sure it's been aligned properly if it gets out of alignment and you're gonna have this kind of problem.
Cropping up I assume that they just haven't been properly calibrate later tested by local election if -- and it's just a coincidence that the reports have been votes for Romney going to the Obama column.
-- that there's there's no way to really know but what what this does say is look.
Every one of these machines at the end puts up a summary screen of all the choices made by the voters they have to very carefully look at that and make sure.
That the machine has has exactly recorded what they've done before they hit that final button that cast the vote.
Ten -- that's very interesting that we all have a couple of seconds but if they hit that button and realize it went to the wrong one can they tell -- election official.
And have sixers -- too late.
Once they hit that cast the vote button it's too late but they need to tell election officials there was a problem so they can.
Let's figure out if the machine is in it -- making mistake got it served OK so would the moral of story is before he had button.
Picture your -- mark is behind the right candidate.
Our daily gazette -- met bonds because -- thank you sir.
