With the presidential election weeks away, residents of Guilford County, North Carolina were alarmed to find out that their voting machines may have been manipulating votes, as some claim their votes for Romney were changed to votes for Obama.
“I was so upset this could happen,” voter Sher Coromalis told MyFox8.com. Coromalis tried at least three times unsuccessfully to cast her vote for Mitt Romney at early polling, and each time her vote was counted as a vote for Obama.
Coromalis also said she had to press the selection button several times before it was accepted, a problem another voter, Marie Haydock, confirmed having. “The frustration is every vote counts,” Haydock told Fox, convinced that numbers reported by recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls actually reflect the people’s choice.
The Guilford County board of elections tried to explain off the mishap, saying this type of problem is definitely “not a conspiracy” and is solved by recalibrating the machine. “It’s not a conspiracy, it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert said trying to calm suspicions of foul play.
Infowars has always held a non-partisan stance on elections and presidential candidates. In the past, we’ve also reported on numerous instances of voter fraud, a practice that is almost as American as apple pie and baseball.
North Carolina was recently at the center of a controversy where nearly 30,000 names of registered voters were actually dead people. “Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” Voter Integrity project director Jay DeLancy told the Charlotte Observer. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”
In January, we reported on the discovery of more than 950 ballots in the South Carolina primary belonging to people that had died. “In a letter dated Thursday, [South Carolina attorney general, Alan] Wilson says the analysis found 953 ballots cast by voters listed as dead. In 71 percent of those cases, ballots were cast between two months and 76 months after the people died. That means they ‘voted’ up to 6 1/3 years after their death,” the AP reported.
In 2006, California state officials discovered that pushing a button in the back of voting machines would allow someone to cast their vote multiple times.
Do yourself and America a favor this election season and, either, don’t vote, vote third-party candidate or write-in Ron Paul.
