Man said he voted straight-party ticket and got opposite results.
A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.
Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.
They pushed it twice and the same thing happened, Laughinghouse said. That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.

This should go to Drudge and Fox. If true the machines at this site should be impounded and an investigation begun.
Here is some advice, don’t pull the “straight party” lever. I would never trust my vote to any kind of time-saving mechanism. Go down the ballot and individually select each race. That’s the only way to be sure.
the machines at this site should be impounded and an investigation begun it's time for tar, feathers and pitchforks.
I hate the demonRats. They are truly Evil's party.

This should be no surprise to anyone. The only surprise I would have is if someone voted Democrat and the results came up Republican. Then and only then could you knock me over with a feather.
New Bern NC is also a Military area....
South Carolina’s machines, too ?
Didn’t know that, the plot thickens.
Let’s fill up the jails. Or lock and load.
The anger people feel is off the charts.
Remember Iran. Obama’s (in)action spoke loud and clear: “trial run”.
Passed through years ago. Beautiful town.
The software was hijacked years ago by democrats. The clocks start ticking Nov 3rd when a stolen election is manifested to the world.
U.S. voting-machine shocker:Does Hugo Chavez own ‘em?
This is nonsense. You calibrate mechanical things or even electromechanical things where there is an analog component. The voting machines cannot be calibrated as they are solely digital, and are suppose to be programed with a certified program that cannot be changed at the polling place. Only the normal public uneducated in the functioning of these devices would be gullible enough to buy this argument. It is a false argument designed to shut people up who are complaining about what they see. The fact that the error is not completely repeatable means that either the software has been rigged, or that the hardware is unstable. It is kind of like a PC computer that runs good for awhile and then keeps acting strange, and then maybe runs good for awhile again.
A voting machine is suppose to be far too stable and simple for that to happen. So you either have voting machines that actually are unstable or you have software that is designed to randomly reverse the votes. How many people are saying that they voted straight democrat and had all there votes change to republicans? If the answer is none then the software is rigged. And I am sure that the software can be rigged so that the voter gets no visual indication that there votes did apply as they directed.
It may be true that the machine registers that keep track of the votes can be zeroed, but you sure would not want that going on after the voting had started. Switching to these machines has ensured that the vote can be rigged.
The fraud has begun..
