Of course we are accustomed to seeing bizarre stories emerge on an election day. Stories of conspiracy, thrown out votes, and miscounting. However, this story may be one of the most interesting I have ever heard. It seems, if you are casting you vote in Perry County, Pennsylvania, a voting machine there will tell you Romney is winning the 2012 election right now. Why? Because it refuses to allow voters to make any other choice. Today, a concerned Reddit user posted a video of a voting machine that would select Mitt Romney for president regardless of a user's attempt to vote for Barack Obama.

Here is the message the man posted in addition to the video in question below:

"I'm the guy who shot the video, hopefully this doesn't get buried. You guys have questions, I have answers.

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

 I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

 I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

 There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I'm not a video guy, but if it's possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more."

What are your thoughts about this glitchy poll machine? Accident? Conspiracy? Farce? Let us know in the comments section below.
