Skip to comments.HERE'S HOW TOUCHSCREENS KILLED ROMNEY VOTES. WHAT THE MACHINE EXPERT CLAIMS.
Posted on 11/14/2012 8:31:40 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A Chicago voting-machine tech is sounding the alarm, claiming he witnessed multiple error messages on the voting touch-screens this election but only in cases where people voted for Mitt Romney.
Steve Pickrum said he worked for Chicagos election system during the early voting and Election Day voting for the 2012 race.
As an equipment manager for the system, Pickrum said, he responded whenever there was a glitch with a voting machine.
On early voting, when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and every time that I saw [a] voter voted for Romney a voter save failure message came up on the screen, he reported.
Then when he went on Election Day to cast his own vote, he picked Romney and experienced the same error message.
Pickrum said he worked at both the Matteson voting area as well as in Precinct 70, and although he discussed the anomalies with his boss, had not yet filed a formal report.
He said when he voted, he was told by a precinct worker to just go ahead and assume that his vote had been tabulated, despite the error message. But since he knew the operations of the machines, he asked the poll workers to check the vote report, and they found his vote had not been counted.
He insisted on completing his ballot on another machine, he told WND.
Curiously, he reported he never saw the error message when the voter was choosing Barack Obama.
Another poll worker, this one assigned at the University of Michigan, reported a list of irregularities, including that the precinct captain told her at one point, You go sit down, you're bothering me, when she was trying to observe the proceedings.

I hope that we correct this tyranny peacefully.
I guess this would explain what happened to the expected GOP turnout. Republican voters turned out, but votes weren’t counted.
I’m glad Florida got rid of the touchscreens after the 2000 debacle. The bubble-in and scan voting systems at least have a paper trail.
What I find disturbing is that people just readily accept these machines that are so obviously more amenable to fraud and outright rigging than voting that leaves a paper trail. What does it take for people to take a stand? I guess with the NFL, NBA, NHL, Kardashians, Real Housewives and American Idol we have our plates way too full for trivial matters.
The media will never make this an issue. It’s the tree falling in the forest.
he who owns machines owns elections...the scores dont match up. why are repubs not raising the roof about it?
so why the hell are the GOP not down in my south east part of the state and stopping this crap.
Obama never won this state, we are seeing massive corruption here and republican votes not being counted, hell every time we have a count and the future mayor and the Col get votes they stop the re-count.
Why is the woman who is in charge of this county not beebn arrested, .Where th ehell is my AG /GOV
Half (or so) of Romney votes went to 0 and there you have 0's *win*. They know it cannot be proven, though.
Dems know they cannot win on merits, therefore they must cheat, lie, steal and intimidate, whatever it takes, whatever works. The ends justify the means.....................
just sen this Murphy guy climing he won the election and making fun of a veteran called Col Allen West and the GOP are frigging where?
is there any stickers out there which mentions the massive rigging of this election or voter obama fraud?
Tyrants never go peacefully. A little bird tells me BamaClaus and his ComeYet crowd will not either.
we’ve seen that republican votes not counted here in FL and that even the woman in charge of elections in St Lucie county can;t explain these results.
Instead she gets people to form a barrier to not let the Col’s observers to see what is happening, , we then have just patial re-counts which ten stop when the reublicans thee start catching up, we saw how the Col was in the lead and then when it got to her county the results changed so much thta evenshe cannot explain how.
Now we have the Col’s challenger saying he’s the new congressman and not a frigging peep from our GOV/AG or Romney or even the national GOP.
A veteran thrown under the bus by a party he hoined and then cheated out of his seat by the other party.
I have no doubt at all that Romney won this election. It was stolen.
There was more than one cheat mechanism is those swing states.
Face it, they were even bringing in cheaters from other ststes in Wisconsin. So R$R had every reason to believe they were in play in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania.
Absentee ballots are paper, and paper is the only way a vote will count.
That would be racist and the MSM would not support them.
4 years of rigging this election and now seeing our side has no guts what so ever to stand up for our votes or Col Allen West then don;t ever count on us ever winning another election.
2016 will go Dem and after that it will be a one party country .
So for all those who say move on then wake up for once in their lives and see a bigger picture here and stop being afraid of being called a name by the left or the media and grow some balls
A paper ballot is no protection against a corrupt Election office willing to commit fraud. There are procedures to ensure that both paper and electronic systems are accurate, but, again, these procedures are useless in the face of internal election office corruption.
thats what i would like to know ... WHERE IS THE GOP???? they were more interested in defeating tea party members and still are
