Electronic voting is a touchy issue

Voting officials must decide what to do when voters report problems casting ballots on touch-screen voting machines.


• Record the serial number of the machine “if they can easily see it,” Zetter said.

• Insist on using a different machine and let all the voters in the polling place know that the machine flipped your vote.

• Insist that the complaint be passed to the elections office, and then report it to the office.

• Insist that the problematic machines be taken out of service if more than one voter complains about a machine.

• Call your local newspaper [Palo Pinto voters can contact the Index at (940) 325-4465] and report what happened.

• Call the county elections office and report what happened.

• Report what happened by calling 1-866-MYVOTE1 (1-866-698-6831) and 1-866-Our-Vote (1-866-687-8683). “Our Vote” states theirs will be staffed with legal experts who can help you determine your voting rights.
