Joan Stevens was one of several early voters at the polls on Monday. But when Stevens tried to cast her ballot for president, she noticed a problem.
Upon selecting “Mitt Romney” on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up.
It took Stevens three tries before her selection was accurately recorded.
Stevens said she alerted Jackie Smith, a board of elections member who was present. Smith declined to comment, but Stevens says she mentioned that the machine had been having problems all day.
The machines are provided by Dominion Voting Systems. Spokesman Chris Riggall said incidents such as these are to be expected.
"These are platforms that, in some cases, have been in use for 10 years or longer," he said. "In the course of millions and millions of ballots cast, you’ll get a report from a voter that the unit they were using was not accurately recording their choice."
