Note to election officials–a good way to restore faith in the validity of election results is to have the demonstration machine function properly:

How hard is this? Bank machines don’t screw up this badly. I think any company that makes a machine that fails repeatedly should be heavily fined for every defective machine. This is ludicrous.

    WOW…he just calibrated it, and it still voted wrong…

    Odd that the demonstrator didn’t address the fact that calibration didn’t work. I’ve never seen a touch-screen more than a fraction of an inch out of line. Imagine the lineups if everyone has to get their machine calibrated two or three times.

    Are international election observers banned from the US this time around as well?

    “Note to election officials–a good way to restore faith in the validity of election results is to abolish black-box electronic voting and mandate optical scan or otherwise paper-trail verifiable systems everywhere, immediately.”

    Fixed.
