Skip to comments.Texas County Switches to Paper Ballots after Software Glitch
Posted on 10/25/2016 10:21:09 AM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyColonel
Chambers County election officials have executed an emergency protocol to remove all electronic voting machines available during early voting until a software update can be completed to correct problems experienced by straight-ticket voters.
Chambers County Clerk Heather Hawthorne told Breitbart Texas Tuesday morning that all electronic voting was temporarily halted until her office completes a software update on ES&S machines that otherwise omit one race when a straight ticket option is selected for either major party. The Texas 14th Court of Appeals race was reported to be the contest in which voters commonly experienced the glitch.
Hawthorne explained that she expects the technical difficulties to be completely addressed by end of business Tuesday. In the interim, regular paper ballots will be used. The county clerk told Breitbart Texas that before the machines were pulled, poll workers were instructed to alert voters to the glitch and double-check their selections.
Chambers County sits east of Texas largest county, Harris, and serves roughly 26,000 registered voters. Hawthorne noted that since polls opened on Monday, only one voter did not have proper photo identification and was required to complete an affidavit to cast a regular ballot. Breitbart Texas recently reported a similar trend in neighboring Harris County where less than 10 out of more than 67,000 ballots cast lacked ID.

Everyone should keep their eyes open and have the voting machines removed if any glitches occur.
How paper ballots are (mis)counted by machine.
Will this be reported as “voter suppression” by the M$M?
These ES&S machines have had troubles before in MANY states. Probably how Obama got elected.
this is only the start.
how many states have already have these reports?
Yup. Controlled by Dems.
There’s the plan - crash the machines!
Hey Anonymous, there’s your marching orders!
Straight paper ballots. More work but stops the easy cheats set in place by Soros, Inc...
Ballots are no assurance that fraud can be avoided, BUT AT LEAST THERE'S A PHYSICAL DOCUMENT AND AT LEAST SOME PAPER TRAIL in case election results are challenged!!!
And this was only because the mistake showed up on the interface. What about all of the voting machines that have “glitches” counting in the background?
BAN THEM NOW!
Run over them with crawlers.
Paper is the best... Count the ballots by hand with representative from both sides counting and observing and with legal teams and judges available to adjudicate disputes. Computers mean glitches, mistakes and fraud on a massive scale.
Voting ‘machines’ should be banned FROM all FEDERAL ELECTIONS.
MAKE THE DEMS STEAL IT THE OLD FASHIONED WAY! STUFFING THE BALLOT BOXES!..................
They are used in Bexar County (San Antonio), TX, and problems were reported in the past.
A study shows they can be tampered with several ways..one of them..
Buffer overflow vulnerabilities are well understood, both practically and in the literature. There is
no doubt that the bugs that allow buffer overflow attacks to occur are present in the iVotronic
1. Paper ballots only. Machine scanners can then always be double-checked (and should be!)
2. Eliminate “no excuse early voting”.
3. Voter ID required by federal law.
There’s a job for SWMNBN after she loses. She already knows how to destroy personal devices with a hammer.
BTW, do you know what the sweetest sound in the world is? Listening to her concession speech.
It’s not a glitch of the voting machines...it’s a feature.
