And you’re surprised?

This happens every year.  This year it was caught in early voting.

Percy Bostick, 69, of Greensboro said he tried casting a vote for Democrat Kay Hagan — who is locked in a tight battle with her GOP opponent — however the machine, located in the Old Guilford County Courthouse — assigned his vote to Republican Thom Tillis.  “I called one of the poll workers over,” Bostick explained. “She said do it again. And again, I touched the screen at the proper place for Kay Hagan, and it again reported it for Thom Tillis.”

According to Bostick, the machine finally recorded his vote for Hagan on the fourth attempt. A poll worker then stepped in and cancelled Bostick’s ballot altogether and directed him to another machine which registered his vote correctly. The problematic machine was taken out of service.  On Wednesday a voter using a  machine at the Craft Recreation Center in Greensboro experienced the same problem with their vote going to Tillis.

But with no records kept, who knows how often people don’t catch this little “error”?  Odd, isn’t it, how it always changes votes from Blue to Red, but never the other way?  And you know that, with their hard on for voting irregularities, the GOP would be shouting it from the rooftops — hell, they’d be broadcasting it from outer space if a single machine ever changed a single vote away from the Republican side of the ledger.
