Voting machine Malfunction
Long lines have become a common theme at this elections as voters in some areas had to wait at least for an hour as there are problems with the voting machines. The Republican candidate notified this issue while he was talking with a news channel.
He was asked whether he will accept the results of the elections, he avoided the question and instead said, “There are reports that when someone votes Republican the entire ticket switches over to Democrat. It’s the machines.”
This is normal according to David Dill, a Stanford computer science professor, he said “This happens every election. It’s admitted by the local officials, who say they’ve fixed the problem.
“Touchscreen machines have a reported problem of vote-flipping. The usual explanation for this is that the machines are calibrated wrong so when you touch it in one place, it registers in another place.”
