    Default Potential voter fraud underway?

    Just seen this on reddit




    I'm the guy who shot the video, hopefully this doesn't get burried. You guys have questions, I have answers.

    My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.
    I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
    I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.
    EDIT: There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I'm not a video guy, but if it's possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the ************************ty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.
    EDIT2: I have been contacted by NBC Universal and BBC News.
    EDIT3: A lot of news agencies are now messaging me here. Please email centralpavote@gmail.com instead.
    EDIT4: This has blown up and I'm being bombarded by the media. I'm taking the second half of the day off and will be home in about 1 hour to start responding to the media.


    Thank god Cullen and Dempsey didnt get away with these machines!

    Obama is allowing voting by email and, I think, even by phone call. His mates will like that.

    States run the voting not the POTUS. The federal courts may also be involved.

    Because they could not be a fake. Nobody could ever make a fake video like that. It would take hours of work. A lame attempt to make un-enthusatic Dem voters get full of moral indignation so they will get off their asses and vote.

    You really should think before you post.

    Considering they spend so much time and effort bringing democracy to the world you'd think they'd try Florida sometime?

    Are U.S. news channels covering this?
    Is it widespread, does anyone know?
    We had a narrow escape on that one ourselves.
