Last week it happened in Cook County, IL. Now: Maryland.
Last week a voting machine in Cook County, Illinois switched votes for Republicans to votes for Democrats. Election officials blamed a “calibration error” for the change. Now, the same thing is happening in Maryland and again officials are citing a “calibration error.” More from Watchdog.org:
Voting machines that switch Republican votes to Democrats are being reported in Maryland.
“When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose — a Republican — but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it,” Donna Hamilton said.
“This happened multiple times with multiple selections. Every time my choice flipped from Republican to Democrat. Sometimes it required four or five tries to get the ‘x’ to stay on my real selection,” the Frederick, Md., resident said last week.
