“...video your votes with your phones...”
What would that accomplish?
Military bases in or near New Bern, North Carolina
MCAS Cherry Point ****
Seymour Johnson AFB

The only part of a machine like that that would be “calibrated” is the touch screen, if it uses a touch screen instead of actual buttons. There are calibration routines run on touch screens to make sure that the touch areas are correctly lined up with the graphics.
Right I commentated on that after it was brought up. And since it is such a huge weakness in the system then I should not be allowed. Nothing that can be inconsistent should ever be a part of the voting process. Here is another example of them using this same excuse to explain away votes where the “calibration” problem always seems to favor democrats.

Thanks for the ping to this craptacular news. I needed the warning as we use the touchscreen machines here too.
