Vote Flipping Caught on Tape

A fascinating bit of video showing how touch screen voting machines can actually pick a candidate other than the one you touched. Numerous people in Jackson County, West Virginia reported that when they tried to vote for Obama the machine instead picked McCain. So Video the Vote went to Jackson County and the County Clerk showed them how the vote flipping happens. Apparently, if the machine isn't calibrated correctly it picks the wrong candidate. What's really disturbing is the clerk calibrates the machine and it works correctly ONE time! The very next time it goes back to not working. Comforting. At least if you see it happen and tell someone at the polling site they should be able to fix it and correct your vote.
