West Virginia “Vote Flipping” Caught on Tape

Video the Vote went to Jackson County, WV, in response to numerous reports of machine vote flipping. The local county clerk showed us the machines in question, but the demonstration left us with serious questions, as the machine continued to malfunction even after it was calibrated.

How confident are you that…
a) All machines in your precinct will have been recently calibrated by a trained professional?
b) Your machine will be one of the few models with a paper trail?
c) Trained techies will be on-site at all polling places, in all 50 states?
d) The techies will follow up after the first “recalibration” fails?
e) Poll-workers will take the time to help you confirm your vote with throngs of irate voters waiting behind you?
f) Poll workers, even if by some miracle they admit your vote was registered wrong, will somehow manually delete the wrong vote and let you go back in the booth to try again?
g) Given that nobody can see the code, and the only mistakes we are able to see are the ones reflected on the visual user interface, that the “calibration bug” is the only part of the programming of the machine that can screw up your vote?
i) You will even get to see a voting booth if you live in a precinct where lots of machines are screwing up, and the lines simply don’t move forward?

I hate to think of myself as a conspiracy theorist. I really do. But sometimes, “Wake Up Sheeple!” are the only appropriate words.
