    Little glitches in voting machines

    Nothing to worry about. Nothing to see here, keep moving please. From - Errors plague voting process in Ohio, Pa.:

    [In Ohio] Some of the machines malfunctioned, others had problems with the personal electronic ballot cartridge placed into the machines before each vote to count the ballots, and other problems were caused by human error, Munroe said.

    The human error specifically was precinct officials getting nervous or overwhelmed by the number of people voting, and then failing to properly follow protocol to count the ballots in the machine, he said.

    That led to some races showing votes of negative 25 million, Munroe said.

    'The numbers were nonsensical so we knew there were problems,' he said.

    There were similar problems at four or five other Mahoning precincts, but poll officials there were alert enough to catch the problems, and fix them, said Thomas McCabe, deputy elections director.
