Skip to comments.Texas County Switches to Paper Ballots after Software Glitch
Posted on 10/25/2016 9:52:06 AM PDT by bobsunshine
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.
Meaningless change if those paper ballots are counted by machine:
Houston is in Harris county.
Three states.....all with DEMOCRAT “glitches” ??
Must be a disease!
Only one way it happens..and it's part of the program.
one can say it was NOT deliberate.
How many others are using the same program.
Where did the program come from? Arrest them!!
I cannot imagine a software more simple than that required to add up a vote tally. If it has any capability beyond that...it is fraud on its very face.
Also, I know we are a “global economy”, but it should be illegal as hell to use foreign built voting machines.
The software update will be a 3 minute delay before machines change votes.
Why weren’t these machines checked to see if they were in working order BEFORE the election began?
Whoever is running the show needs to be sacked.
And that’s if the glitches were just innocent malfunctions.
If it was deliberate, the Texas prisons need a few more inmates.
What a hoot. ES&S voting machines is located on JOHN GALT Avenue in Omaha, NE,.
Here are the phone numbers (for each state) to report election fraud:
But sadky, probably true.
They were working right. Or rather, working as intended.
Why would a programmer make visible the change? Just change it “under the hood”. This doesn’t make sense unless someone is intentionally trying to bring doubt to computer voting.
Odd that it doesn’t switch AFTER.
I wonder if they’re trying to keep a veneer of truthfulness. An audit of voting programs would reveal vote switching code, but poorly calibrated? No evidence there.
That or the code gets audited, or can be audited, and any revelation like that would bring the game crashing down.
Whereas visible glitches have plausible deniability.
There really is a simple explanation...
On the opposite side of the Earth's orbit of the Sun, there is a clone Earth which we cannot see. On that one, 'Rat votes are switched to Republican.
Of course, on that Earth, Republicans are the ones that want to shred their Constitution, and the Democrats are the Patriots.
Proper ID? as in Hi, my name is Jose just in from south of the border, can I get me a drivers license.
That kind of Proper Id? Yeah sure...
