Some early W.Va. voters angry over switched votes
Jackson County touch-screens switched votes, 3 residents say
At least three early voters in Jackson County had a hard time voting for candidates they want to win.
By Paul J. Nyden
Staff writer

At least three early voters in Jackson County had a hard time voting for candidates they want to win.

Virginia Matheney and Calvin Thomas said touch-screen machines in the county clerk's office in Ripley kept switching their votes from Democratic to Republican candidates.

"When I touched the screen for Barack Obama, the check mark moved from his box to the box indicating a vote for John McCain," said Matheney, who lives in Kenna.

When she reported the problem, she said, the poll worker in charge "responded that everything was all right. It was just that the screen was sensitive and I was touching the screen too hard. She instructed me to use only my fingernail."

Even after she began using her fingernail, Matheney said, the problem persisted.

When she tried to vote for candidates running for two open seats on the Supreme Court, the electronic machine canceled her second vote twice.

On her third try, Matheney managed to cast votes for both Menis Ketchum and Margaret Workman, Democratic candidates for the two open seats.

Calvin Thomas, 81, who retired from Kaiser Aluminum in Ravenswood in 1983 and now lives in Ripley, experienced the same problem.

"When I pushed Obama, it jumped to McCain. When I went down to governor's office and punched [Gov. Joe] Manchin, it went to the other dude. When I went to Karen Facemyer [the incumbent Republican state senator], I pushed the Democrat, but it jumped again.

"The rest of them were OK, but the machine sent my votes for those top three offices from the Democrat to the Republican," Thomas said.

"When I hollered about that, the girl who worked there said, 'Push it again.' I pushed Obama again and it stayed there. Then, the machine did the same thing for other candidates.

"Why didn't she [the polling clerk] tell me before I even used the machine that might happen? And how many people, especially my age, didn't notice that?

"Jackson County is a Republican county. I am a registered Republican, but I have been voting Democrat since the 1990s."

Thomas, who brought his daughter with him to the polls, said she had the same problem.

"After I finished, my daughter voted. When she pushed Obama, it went to McCain. It happened to her the same way it happened to me. If the poll worker knew that, why didn't she tell me before I even pushed the button?"

Deputy Secretary of State Sarah Bailey said, "When we received a call about this, we immediately called the county and told them to recalibrate the machines to make sure the finger-touch [area] lines up with the ballot.

"Sometimes machines can become miscalibrated when they are moved from storage facilities to early voting areas," Bailey said Friday. "We get a couple of calls about this each election year."

Most voting machines in most counties do work properly, Bailey added.

Jackson County Clerk Jeff Waybright said, "After we got a call from the Secretary of State's Office, we recalibrated the machine. We had already voted over 400 people with no problems."

Voting problems occur when voters touch the screen, Waybright said, but do not put their fingers inside boxes for their candidates.

Waybright blamed the problem on voters.

"People make mistakes more than the machines," he said, "but I went in yesterday and recalibrated the machines. We are doing everything we can not to disenfranchise anybody."

Matheney remains concerned.

"Leaving the polling place," she said, "I wondered how many voters might not have noticed that their vote was switched on the machine."

I am a realist that is slightly conservative yet I have some republican demeanor that can turn democrat when I feel the urge to flip independant.

this is what i've been saying to friends for some time now,
What catalyzing event could be more detrimental to us but nice and clean for the new "American socialist party" than for their beloved "superman" to be publicly scorned, causing an indignant outcry from the poor huddled masses to riot and thus cause us to be in deep shit.

Yeah if this happens im definetly caring a gun everywhere I go. I do agree this is the plan and there are very few people that won't fall for it. I personally think Obama is a actor and he should get an award. I think He is playing the part of a runner to incite a racial riot in this country so the gubermint can institute martial law.

this is more proof to me that the election could possibly be staged to look like a win for McCain. Then there will be information that it was rigged and Obama will become President. I said this before after the Republican Spoonamore came out and said it would be rigged. It sounds like a huge set up to discredit the Republicans and to energize the Obama-nuts.

This seems like a setup to me.

Step 1: Steal the election for McCain

Step 2: "Leak" information that the election was stolen

Step 3: Stage a popular uprising to put Obama into office

This would energize all of the Obamabots, Obamanazis and Obama Greenshirts. It would create a lot of positive support for Obama that wouldn't have existed in a normal election.

Just think of how easy this would be to do. Just think of all the consequences this would have. It would spell doom for us. It would mean Tarpley is 100% correct that Obama is the post-modern fascist coup.

In the last 2 presidential elections the republicans were meant to win.

I think this story is evidence of evolution, corruption, and compartmentalization of that previously established cheating.


Perhaps now the big boys have the computers rigged at the tabulator level and a couple of bad eggs from yesteryear have been exposed.

hehe 81 y/o quoted as saying "the other dude"

whatever. you think they are going to show the conspiracy to the voters? lol
how many times have you waited in line at an atm for 10 minutes before you have to
get out and try to help the person trying to use it???

why rig the machines when you can rig the nation with the greatest social engineering network(scam)
is in full swing ..... the MSM.
not that they aren't though. I would trust a workforce of Chinese brought in to count the votes
over a diebold.

I don't know whether I am more scared of obama
winning or losing at this point.
